What is a preferred vendor list? A preferred vendor list is a list of businesses or people that you purchase services or products from. These are the vendors that you have a relationship, an agreement, the one that you want to call or order from when you are in need of what they provide.
Who is usually on your preferred vendor list? That depends on you, your preferred vendor list can be as small or as extensive as you want it to be.
It can include just your utility and maintenance vendors or right down to the restaurants you like to order lunch from, it is all up to. The most gathered information for a vendor and a list of some preferred vendor categories are listed below. You can create your vendor list in many ways, alphabetically is not usually the best way, the best way is usually to create categories.
Once you have created a list it should be shared and stored so that everyone that will be using it has access to it, it should also be accessible from off site in case of an emergency in the building and you cannot get to it.
