2. Supplier Criticality is a result of an assessment to identify suppliers whose failure to deliver contracted products or services would significantly impact on the organisation; failure of a critical supplier to deliver products or services in accordance with an agreement would and materially affect the ability of the receiving organisation to conduct its business.
