    Bypass CPA reference for Non catalog request
    Bypass CPA reference for Non catalog request

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


    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.
