Your ceo wants to develop specific criteria

Your CEO wants to develop specific criteria to select vendors for office supplies, equipment, etc. and has asked you to investigate selection criteria.  In a two-page business memo:

Explain why a selection criterion is needed

Recommend specific criteria (no less than 5 elements)

Explain why each element in the list is needed

To strengthen your recommendation, include an example of a company and its criteria.


Use the attached memo template. 


Support your memo with 2 to 3 credible references beyond the course materials.  Please note Wikipedia, Investopedia and similar websites are not credible academic references.  The best place to locate credible references is the Online Library.
