This guide shows you how to create a solicitation type and associate this with a scoring method. It also shows how to use the solicitation type on a request for quotation (RFQ) which then sets the default scoring method. These tasks would typically be carried out by a purchasing manager. You can use this procedure in demo data company USMF or on your own data. You need to have a scoring method available before you start.
