In other words, companies will little or no capacities will start from category “D” and migrate upwards as they improve their competencies and acquire greater capabilities.

Performance feedback

  • A collaborative tool for assessing two-way performance between contractors or suppliers, and their clients (buyers).
  • Performance feedback assesses up to 17 business elements, not all elements may apply to a specific business contract.
  • The process provides an objective assessment of the levels of performance achieved across the range of elements and the ability to set a standard for the supplier's performance against other companies (benchmarking).
  • Buyers and suppliers have equal responsibilities to initiate feedback. Feedback should be completed by those people best positioned to make judgments on the performance.


  • NJQS benchmarking provides a buyer company with the opportunity to make a company a “point of reference” against other suppliers of similar goods and services, thus highlighting a company’s strengths and helping to improve weak areas of performance.
  • A performance feedback benchmark, showing a company’s position in relation to other suppliers registered for a similar product code, is available and can be accessed at any time.
