Vendor Checklists are used in negotiated acquisitions to communicate Government requirements to prospective contractors and to solicit proposals.
Many state, local, and federal governments require Vendor Checklists or RFP bids from multiple parties. Some give preference to certified diversity vendors via set asides and diverse business participation requirements for contracting assistance programs such as the US Small Business Administration’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract program.
The federal government’s goal is to award at least 5% of all federal contracting dollars to women-owned small businesses each year.
The Contracting and Procurement teams at government organizations can download the Microsoft Support Vendor Checklist to facilitate the identification and qualification of government contractors capable of replacing Microsoft Premier or Unified Support, often at significant cost reduction and operational efficiency gain.
