How is Vendor Assessment done on Government e-Marketplace?

The Government e-Marketplace (GeM) is a B2G e-commerce portal launched by the Government of India in 2016. It is an interactive online platform where sellers, as well as government buyers, connect for the procurement of Goods & Services that are required by various Government Departments, Organizations and Public Sector Undertakings.

A trader or a manufacturer, who wishes to put up his products on sale or deliver his services directly to the government authorities, have to first get GeM registration as a seller on the Government e-Marketplace (GeM).

After the GeM registration process, there’s an important stage called vendor assessment. In the case of a manufacturer/OEM, the seller can sell his goods only upon the vendor assessment.

Here, we will try to understand the vendor assessment process. First of all, we must know the process of on-board the new seller (OEM) on the GeM portal.


1. What is the process of on-board a new seller on the GeM login?

Given below is the complete process of on-board a new seller on the GeM login, explained in detail:- 

  • Step 1: GeM Registration 

The seller has to register under the GeM portal by submitting business details.

  • Step 2: Product listing 

The seller has to upload products that wish to sell on the GeM portal.

  • Step 3: Setup OEM Control Panel 

In the case of the manufacturer, the seller has to obtain Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) to claim ownership of their originally manufactured products.

  • Step 4: Vendor Assessment 

This is the most important stage. Once the manufacturer having GeM Registration, gets an OEM panel, then the seller has to complete the Vendor registration process.

2. How is the Vendor Assessment done?

The Vendor Assessment or Vendor registration is subject to the Quality Council of India [QCI]. 

  • Vendor Assessment is done on the payment of a nonrefundable government fee of INR 11,200/- + 18% GST. 

  • Besides, the manufacturer’s products have to go through with quality assessment conducted by the Quality Council of India (QCI). 

  • The manufacturer may be asked to obtain further cerfication.

  • The OEM may be required to get the ISO certification in India.

3. Which sellers are exempt from the Vendor registration process?

  1. Stationery

  2. Artistic work or

  3. Handicraft
