    Title:
    Blanket Purchase Agreement
    Summary:
    Fusion - R12 Blanket Purchase Agreement
    Content:

    Hi,

    I am looking for following information about Purchase Order releases that can be created out of Blanket Purchase Agreement.

    Enviroment:  Fusion R12

     

    1- Where can i find out the menu/page to create relese for Blanket Purchase Agreement?

    2- Usually, releases are available in Purchasing tab in EBS version of ERP. But i do not see it in Fusion. Does this functionaliy change in Fusion?

    3- In case we create a Purchase Order release out of an Agreement then can we match the Invoices to Purchase Order release?

     

    Thank You

    Binayak

    Binakak,

    In your previous post you said you were creating a new requisition, so I assumed you were using Self Service Procurement (which is were purchase requisitions are created.) However, it looks like you are creating a purchase order with no backing requisition.In this case, you can use Actions -> Add from Catalog from the PO Lines region to search the BPA line and add it to the PO.

      1- Where can i find out the menu/page to create relese for Blanket Purchase Agreement?

      => You release against an agreement by creating a requisition line sourced to that agreement and processing it into a purchase order, or by directly creating a purchase order and sourcing lines to the agreements. 

      2- Usually, releases are available in Purchasing tab in EBS version of ERP. But i do not see it in Fusion. Does this functionaliy change in Fusion?

      => Releases are created as standard purchase orders.

      3- In case we create a Purchase Order release out of an Agreement then can we match the Invoices to Purchase Order release?

      => You can match invoices to purchase orders sourced to agreements the same way you would match to any standard purchase order.

        Ivan,

         

        Thank you for your response. But can you provide some additional information about following statements?

         

        => You release against an agreement by creating a requisition line sourced to that agreement and processing it into a purchase order, or by directly creating a purchase order and sourcing lines to the agreement?

         

        Just to let you know that we do not have any inventory and we follow 2 way matching process. I created a purchase agreement and approved it. Now, while creating a new requisition, i am trying to search for the agreement but the agreement is not visible in the list of values for agreement for the supplier in the requisition screen.Do know, why the agreement is not visible in the requisition screen for the same supplier?

         

        Thanking You

      Hi Binayak,

      The BPA needs to be available in the content zone assigned to the requester. Please check Support Note 1920430.1 for troubleshooting steps. Please also check the Manage Content Zones section of the Oracle Procurement Cloud Using Procurement Guide.

        Hi Ivana,

        We are not using Self Service Procurement in our enviroment. Purchase Requisition is created from regular Purchase Requisition Page. So do you think, above solution is applicable when  SSP is not used? And also, i tried to capture BPA number at the PO line while creating a standard purchase order but the BPA number was not selected in the PO creation too. 

        Thanks

      Ivan,

      If i am clicking on Action tab on PO Line, i do not see any Actions -> Add from Catalog from the PO Lines region to search the BPA line and add it to the PO. So 

      Is it because, we do not have any item defined in our system?

      Hi Binayak, 

      For my understanding, you want to create the PO directly in Purchasing and would like to reference the BPA?

      In the screenshot, did you select an existing line on the PO or did you create a new line and invoked the action menu?
      I think only in the latter case, the add from catalog function pops-up.

      Although you may not be using requisitions, did you subscribe to Self Service Procurement? - As I understood only with a SSP subscription you're allowed to browse the catalog - but having said that - I would not know how to associate the PO to the BPA either ..
