Why is it recommended to establish a formal evaluation criterion when considering the purchase of hardware for the organization?
If you don't have a good list of the specifics that your new system/hardware will be required to perform, you may buy products that don't meet your needs or will meet those needs for only a short time ... and then you'll need to upgrade.
(good list of specifics = evaluation criteria)
Also, you might want to keep in mind that "criterion" is a word meaning one item in your list of specifics; "criteria" is the plural form of the word. I think your question needs to have the plural form of the word in it.
