I guess this varies from project to project and differs based on a defined set of circumastances but some general ones include the following:

Is the solution Fit-for-purpose (i.e. least possible changes to the standard software as possible).
Has the Company got a proven Track Record of similar deliverables
How Mature is the Technology - Bleeding Edge etc.. (Associated Risk)
How stable is the Vendor - Well established or new entrant
What is the Cost of the Solution
What are the Deliver Schedule and Milestones (will they match the project timelines)
What are their process like - including testing etc..

You should the weight each of these criteria and then score each of the Venodrs.. highest score wins ;-)

It does vary from project to project, and really depends on the nature and type of solution you are looking for. For example, there is little point going into scalability and serviceability for an internet based solution if it is client server, or, little point going into customisations, or user defined functions if it is a simple "purpose built" or niche system (such as RFID asset tracking), or comms capability of remote devices for sales force automation, or software if looking for a neworking / hardware solution...

So to generate a list is kind of a moot point, and you often end up with a whole pile of "N/A" type questions. Often, it is best to zero in on the several "business" issues you are trying to resolve and allow the technology to become secondary focus, get the business problem fixed and then look at technology - looking at technology alone will not provide you with a "fit for business" solution.

In terms of comparing companies then you start to look at size, reputation, experience, partnership philosophy, supplier relationship, price, expertise, and recognition (such as cisco partners, microsoft gold partner etc etc ). Look at their implementation methodology, support and future upgrade and weigh up the total cost of ownership.

So, if you care to describe in broad terms the nature and type of application you are looking toward, can provide some more guidance. Otherwise it is just far too generic and open to answer.
