    Can a Punchout be configured to use a Contract Purchase Agreement?
    Summary:
    Can a Punchout be configured to use a Contract Purchase Agreement?
    Content:

    Here is the situation.  The client is a large School District.  The board approves a contract Purchase Agreement for $3MM with Office Depot - who is a punch out partner. Ideally for each Office Depot punch out PO created it will consume the $3MM contract.  

    Has anyone tried this and been successful?  My initial thought is that we could ask Office Depot to provide the Contract PA in a field that is mapped to agreement - does this exist?

    Any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Hi Bill,

    Yes, create the agreement and in controls check Enable automatic sourcing and then Punchout Requests Only.  When you add item directly from the punchout to the requisitions it automatically pulls the Agreement.

      You need to make sure that your punchout and the contract agreement are both tied to the same Supplier Site.  When the site it used, the requisition will pull in the contract agreement.

      Thanks to Jennifer and Judy.  Your suggestions together are the solution...

When you add an item from the Punchout, it will automatically pull in the agreement.
