What is it?

A Call-up is the distribution of opportunities (work) to an active qualified supplier list (a form of Vendor of Record) created by issuing a Request for Supplier Qualifications (RFSQ). It can also be referred to as a second stage procurement, where the RFSQ was the first stage.

Why is it important?

When developing a qualified supplier list, clients must decide how Call-ups will be allocated to the successful vendor(s). This includes rules regarding how Carleton will select which vendor(s) will be contacted for each opportunity, how the vendor(s) will be contacted, what details will be provided to them (ex: a Statement of Work), and what may happen if a vendor declines or does not respond to a Call-up.
