Dear FOI BSO,

Having had sight of a number of Supplier's correspondence entitled "VENDOR RATING", I am somewhat puzzled by your reply.

Can you therefore please confirm:
1. Has the Vendor Rating system and related correspondence to suppliers been renamed?
2. If so, on what date was it renamed?

Yours sincerely,

Victor Woodford

Dear Mr Woodford,

I am writing in response to your follow-up enquiry through What Do They Know.Com dated 8th December 2017. The Corporate Services office who process FOI requests on behalf of BSO have been advised the following by BSO PaLs.

a) As confirmed in our previous correspondence we do not operate a vendor rating system within BSO PaLS.
However it has come to light that an officer has issued correspondence entitled: "VENDOR RATING – Supplier Relationship Management – Inbound service level monthly performance report."

The title of this correspondence gives the impression that such a system is in operation however this is not the case. The inappropriately titled correspondence was issued to inform suppliers of their performance against agreed service levels in delivering goods to the BSO PaLS warehouses only, it does not form part of or relate to any vendor rating system nor has BSO PaLS at any time operated such a system or ranked suppliers/vendors (other than as part of a tender evaluation process). I can advise you that the correspondence in question is under review to ensure that it correctly represents the purpose for which it is used.

Therefore in answer to the questions you have asked:

1. Has the Vendor Rating system and related correspondence to suppliers been renamed? - No, BSO PaLS does not operate a "Vendor Rating" system nor has it operated such a system since BSO PaLS inception.
2. If so, on what date was it renamed? - BSO PaLS does not and has not operated a vendor rating system which it could rename.

I apologise for the clumsy titling of the correspondence of which you have had sight and for our failure to identify that such clumsily titled correspondence was in circulation in advance of our previous response on this matter, had we been aware we would have provided clarity on its purpose in that previous correspondence.

Kind regards

BSO
