The Vendor Item Price Inquiry (VIPQ) lists an item's pricing from multiple vendors based on information maintained in Vendor Price Maintenance (VMM).

You enter an item that you want to see pricing for and the program displays:

  • whether or not the vendor is QA-approved to supply the item
  • an indication of the preferred vendor for the item
  • the vendor number, name and vendor item number
  • the minimum order quantity
  • the price, when it became effective and when it expires
  • and more!
