An Evaluation Of The Supplier Selection And Evaluation Process In Zimbabwean Universities
Supplier selection and evaluation is fast becoming an
important strategic consideration in purchasing and supply.
Suppliers play an influential role to the overall success of the buying organisation. Nowadays, supplier selection is firmly positioned as an alternative source for competitive advantage for organisations with regards to offering low cost, high quality products and services or achieving reliability to customers. As organisations become more dependent on suppliers, the direct and indirect consequences of poor decision making on supplier selection will become more critical. With the increasingly important role of suppliers in supply chain management, the selection process strategy has changed; other than scanning a series of pricelists only, qualitative, quantitative and environmental criteria have now been incorporated into the process.
