    A DPAS rated order from a customer is greater than $50,000, so the the rating would need to be flowed down to a supplier. However, if the supplier has to purchase 5 different parts, and they each are $10k, $15K, $5K, $13K & $17K, then since they are each less than $50,000 would the rating need to be flowed down to the sub-supplier?


    Answer

    In your scenario, the DPAS rating has already been assigned to the order.  In this case, the priority rating must be included on each successive order placed to fill customer’s rated order. This continues from contractor to subcontractor to supplier throughout the entire procurement chain.
