What do I do if I want to keep a Vendor's score for Pricing Criteria blank?

If you are missing the price from a Vendor but would like to keep something as a placeholder on your Scorecard, it is suggested that you put in an extremely high number (i.e., a higher price than anything actually bid by your vendors) so that the Scorecard will automatically rate that Vendor the lowest and not affect the other Vendor's scores.

This is because the formula used to calculate Pricing criteria cannot accept any zeros, otherwise it will not be able to complete the calculation properly and return a score of 0 pts for all vendors.

NOTE: It is best practice to leave clear commentary in the Comments box stating that this number is just a placeholder until the official price comes in.
