This template rates vendors across ten dimensions. Each dimension has a weight associated to it that denotes the importance or impact on the total rating. Additionally, each dimension has a number of subcomponents that can be used in the evaluation effort. For each dimension rate the vendor’s performance on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being low and 10 being high). Then multiply the weight and score together for that dimension to arrive at a weighted score. When all the dimensions have been performance rated, sum the weighted score column to get an overall score for the vendor (100 percent would be perfect).
"But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown."
