Vendor Qualification Checklists/Templates
Our VP of Engineering is in agreement that the Director of QA should be involved in the qualification of outside vendors. He'd like me to provide his R&D Manager with a checklist or template of questions to pose to a vendor, early in the research phase of a project. Thinking is that the R&D Manager might find 5 or so vendors that could fit our needs, he'll then need to whittle them down. Price of course is a big decision factor usually. But he'd also need to ensure that they have the proper design/manufacturing controls in place and the VP of Engineering feels that it would be
better to have the R&D Manager use my template to interview potential vendors. Rather than have the Director of QA do this.
A site vistit/audit would then be done by the Director of QA.
Anyone know of some example Vendor Qualification Checklists or Templates?
Agree/disagree with this approach?
