VENDOR ASSESSMENT ON GeM PORTAL
Vendor Assessment is mandatory for certain sellers in Government e-Marketplace (GeM). After registration on the GeM portal, a seller needs to set up an OEM to claim ownership of the product and service they want to sell. Sellers are required to apply for Vendor Assessment for evaluating the credentials and quality standards.
After Vendor Assessment, sellers can list their brand on the GeM portal. Once their brand is listed, they can list their products under appropriate categories and participate in bids.
Let’s understand all about the Vendor Assessment starting with its definition first.
What is Vendor Assessment?
Vendor Assessment is one aspect of Vendor validation on the GeM portal. It is done to determine the quality of a vendor and its products & services. From 1st August 2017, all the manufacturers and resellers are required to claim their OEM to be able to offer their goods and services on GeM.
It’s a filterable parameter on GeM that buyers can use to narrow down their options for vendors. The merchant and vendor gain reputation and authenticity as a result of this. Currently, the Quality Council of India (QCI) is in charge of conducting vendor assessments of all vendors on GeM.
