· ABC has never done business with your organization, they will be a new supplier and they are located outside of the country.
· The current supplier and incumbent is XYZ Company who has been a supplier for over 10 years and is a few blocks away from your warehouse. They came in second place.

· You review the Evaluation Committee’s Report and notice that there was an error in how the Evaluation Committee analyzed the pricing provided by the first place Proponent.
