    Title:
    Bypass CPA reference for Non catalog request
    Summary:
    Bypass CPA reference for Non catalog request
    Content:

    We have suppliers for which we have active contracts (CPA) but the business sometimes buy from the same suppliers without a contract (Non catalog).

    Example: 

    Supplier : Telstra

    Site: Melbourne

    CPA # 321231

    In the current functionality if I used the above supplier and site in Non catalog requisition OR smart form (without any value in agreement field) all the requisitions automatically picks the CPA# 321231.

    We have scenarios where business don't want the requisition to reference any existing contract (CPA) even though a CPA exists for the supplier and instead the non catalog requisition should be created without any agreement reference.

    How can we bypass/avoid the existing CPA reference of supplier on the non catalog request?

    To add to what's mentioned in this referenced post, there's a control on the CPA that limits autosourcing to only punch out items. You may want to consider turning that control on for your scenario.
