Supplier Scorecard

National Instruments compiles performance data on a quarterly basis for select suppliers and publishes the data in the Supplier Scorecard. "Select suppliers" are typically suppliers that appear on the National Instruments "top 80 percent of spend" list in U.S. dollars. Scorecards are discussed during quarterly business reviews and provide guidance for business allocations and supplier recognition. See Performance Monitoring and Feedback section of the Supplier Handbook for more information.

Please refer to the link below for additional information on scorecard criteria and category weighting.
