Vendor Bid Analysis (Vendor analysis) is a technique used to figure out the cost of a project by comparing the bids submitted by many suppliers. This can be accomplished by considering the costs (via quotes, bids, proposals, etc.) presented for project work. By using a selection criteria divided into categories, vendor proposals have to meet these criteria or may be eliminated.[1][2][3]

Evaluating Bids[edit]

While analyzing the bids of a product or service, the buying side may consider the following:

  • Records from previous deals
  • Meeting with quality needs
  • Seller capacity and resources
  • Meeting deadlines in records
  • Financial capability
