    Title:
    Create Blanket Purchase Agreement without Buyer Role/Privileges/Procurement Agent
    Summary:
    Is possible to create a blanket purchase agreement without Buyer Role/Privileges/Procurement Agent setup
    Content:

    Hi,

    I'm wondering if it is possbile to create a Blanket Purchase Agreement without beeing a buyer (role) and/or having buyer privileges and procurement agent setup.

    I'm asking because of limited buyer licences and because of that some non-buyer users should be able to create blanket purchase agreeements only if possible without buyer privileges etc. they should also not having the ability to proceed Req's to PO's and create PO's etc. - only the ability to create blanket agreements.

    Thanks for any thoughts on that,

    Michael

    Hi Michael

     

    Try creating a new job role (ex: Buyer-BPA Only) with following duty roles only:

    1) Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty 

    2) Purchase Agreement Control Duty

     

     

    The above two duty role have following privileges included:

    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Author Standard Contract Terms and Conditions
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Cancel Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Change Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Change Supplier Site
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Communicate Purchase Order and Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Create Blanket Purchase Agreement Line
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Create Blanket Purchase Agreement Line from Catalog
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Create Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Download Contract for External Parties
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Enable Purchase Agreement Catalog Authoring
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Transfer Blanket Purchase Agreement to Catalog Administrator
    Purchase Agreement Authoring Duty Transfer Blanket Purchase Agreement to Supplier
    Purchase Agreement Control Duty Acknowledge Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Control Duty Cancel Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Control Duty Finally Close Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Control Duty Freeze Purchase Agreement
    Purchase Agreement Control Duty Hold Purchase Agreement

     

    Also add the following functional Security policy in the custom role:

    1) View Purchase Agreement Work Area -

    Resource Name : /WEB-INF/oracle/apps/prc/po/commonPo/ui/flow/PurchasingWorkareaAgreementsFlow.xml#PurchasingWorkareaAgreementsFlow

     

    Let me know if the custom role works.

      It worked. Thanks Piyush.

      I have to go into deeper discussions with the client anyway "who is going to do what" because couple of other things need to be set up along with Blankets es well e.g. setting up approved supplier lists/catalogs. More like a segregation of duty question and available resources.

      Thanks,
      Michael

        Michael,

        Subscription usage count is not based on count of holder of the seeded buyer role if that's what you are hoping for. 

        Regards,
        Suman.

          Hi Suman

          Can you provide more details on how is the subscription usage determined.

          I referred to the following documents:

          Metrics for Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications (Doc ID 2512712.1)

          As per the above document, for B69717 Purchasing Cloud Service - Hosted Named Users is count is based on the number of active users which are assigned the "View Purchase Order Work Area" (PO_VIEW_PURCHASING_WORKAREA_PRIV) privilege.
