Averages by vendor type

The Averages by Vendor Type view compares the current ratings for a vendor in each metric category with the average, maximum, and minimum values for all vendors of a certain type.

All ratings are from assessments generated over the trailing twelve months (TTM). Rating variances are highlighted as follows:
