Pre-Order Model 5 - OEM Sales Representative Quote Process, Pre-2000 Version A 
Status:  Balloted and Ratified by Membership, August 1996

Business Overview

Special Notes:

This model may be re-cast as a scenario.

Intended to be used when the Buyer desires direct and/or specific distribution quotes, and the OEM Rep/Supplier will coordinate this effort as a service. If the Buyer requests distribution quote, the OEM Rep/ Supplier will forward quote to Distributor who will then respond to Buyer. Otherwise, the OEM Rep/Supplier will send quote to Buyer.

This model is not recommended as a business practice to be used in the Pre-Order process, however it is documented because it is a practice that occasionally is used to accommodate (or as a service to) the buyer.
