    Creating a Supplier with an alias name in order to mask real name

    mmg Journeyman

      Is it possible to create a Supplier with an alias name that will mask the true name of the organization? Here is the business need. In order to eliminate selection bias, it is necessary, at times, to mask the names of participants while evaluating RFX responses. In such cases, blinded grading may be used. However, it is not a full-proof way of concealing supplier identities. Along these lines, I wondered if it would be possible to assign an alias to the supplier at the time of supplier creation itself? If yes, what would the implications be for the supplier?
