Consensus Scoring Questionnaires

Like with other Criteria, you can also apply a Consensus Score to each answer in a Questionnaire (see our Consensus Scoring article for more).

NOTE: Consensus Scoring is a feature that needs to be enabled. Please contact to have this feature enabled. Once enabled for the portal, you can choose to enable it on a project to project basis. Consensus Scoring can be selected during the Project Creation Wizard or later on by editing the Project.

Enabling Consensus Scoring

You can edit your project at any time by selecting Edit Project in the Actions menu on the Project Details page (top right corner). The Edit Project box will pop up. Check off Consensus Scoring

Entering Questionnaire Consensus Scoring

To access the Questionnaire for Consensus Scoring, we need to first navigate to the individual Scoring Summary for the Vendor Submission we wish to add a Consensus Score

To do this, click on the Vendor name in the Scoring Summary section of the Project Details page. 

From the Vendor Scoring Summary, navigate to the Evaluation Group that the Questionnaire was mapped to. Access the Consensus Scorecard by clicking on any of the (-) boxes on the Consensus line. 

The Consensus Scorecard will pop up. Click on Score Questions to enter the scorecard view. 

In the scorecard view, ensure the scorecard is marked Consensus (purple box) at the top left of the screen. If it does not, you are not in the Consensus Scorecard.

Apply a Consensus Score

You can enter the consensus score in one of two ways. The first is to enter it into the score box at the bottom of the page. 

Or, you can double-click on the question scoring to access the Question View. From here, you can view all Evaluator scores for this question at once. You will enter your Consensus score in the score box at the bottom of the page, leave a comment (optional), and click on the green checkmark to enter the score.  

Once back in the Scorecard View, should you choose to delete any Consensus Scores, you can do so by clicking on the trash can icon that appears next to the Consensus Score. 

NOTE: Only a Buyer can enter consensus scores on behalf a group of evaluators.
