Vendor Selection Patterns
I've been involved in a number of vendor selection activities over the past few years. Recently I produced a paper called Vendor Selection Patterns as input into EuroPLOP. Unfortunately I failed to make it to the conference, but you may get some value from some of the lessons contained in this paper. I'll be submitting this to EuroPLOP next year and I imagine the post-workshop revision will be significantly improved. One of the really tough things was finding good references, the set of good technical books on the RFP process seems a bit thin on the ground.
