English term or phrase: direct vendor matchups
Am reposting this question as previous post went unanswered; see if I am lucky this time!

In a management development course, included as examples for writing and communication skill excercises in connection with statement of expectations:

"Expectation from the begining of the year: Win 50% of the ****direct vendor matchups***
Statement Draft: Achieved 58% of all direct vendor matchups
Suggested Improvement: Won 87 direct vendor matchups, 58% of the total count. This was a 20% improvement over previous years"

Could this be in relation to tenders?

Many thanks for your suggestions.

If we are talking about a firm whose business is matching vendors, i.e. by offering a virtual space where vendors can meet "directly", this would make sense. (Like ProZ): "Encuentro" is the term to use. Conversly, if offer and demand is what meets, "calce" would be a more suitable verb: i.e successful matches between vendors and clients...

Intuyo que se trata de una de estas dos opciones. No obstante, se requiere más contexto... saludos
