Structured Criteria Development

Structured Criteria Development is employed by a number of organisations to ensure that their selection process is as objective as possible and that the selected supplier will fulfil all of the key requirements of the contract. Creating the tender document with a set of specific criteria allows the evaluators to focus on the response to these, rather than trawling through an entire bid to see if they can find it. This is usually applied by procurement authorities using the AWARD® software tool. Both AWARD® and Structured Criteria Development were developed by Commerce Decisions.
