    Hi All,

    We are on R12. Once we configure PO approval rules in the system, we would like to validate the rules through a report. Is there a standard report available or please share if you have one built? Other than report, is there any other way to validate?

    Thanks, Bala.

    Create Catalog with Items that carry Negative Pricing for...1

    Create Catalog with Items that carry Negative Pricing for options
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a business scenario where we have contracts with items that have options that have negative pricing. This allows a requester to substitute an option with a lower priced one and effectively change the price of the item to be purchased. We have tried to use the CTO Blanket Agreement to define the configuration and the options with negative prices. But we are not able to generate the requisition of this CTO BPA and select the options required. How can this scenario be acheived using Self Service Procurement and Purchasing? Below is the business case of a contract with pricing we are trying to model.

    VEH-001   TANDEM AXLE CHASSIS, Minimum 60,000 GVWR with 14' Dump Body Hydraulics,                                    $120,000

    VEH-OPT001A DEDUCT:  Fuller 13 Speed Model RTLO-12913A OR RTLO-14913A In lieu of Allison Automatic             -$7000

    VEH-OPT001B DEDUCT: manual transmission in lieu of Allison Automatic                                                                         -$6500

    VEH-OPT001C  Parts CD-ROM For Chassis and Engine                                                                                                      $300

    Hi,

    We are on R12. We have scheduled some ESS jobs and found that some of the jobs were failing often (for various valid reasons). We would like to generate a report with the process id, job name (not definition), arguments, submitted by, status, scheduled time and completed time. Is there a standard report available or have anything built custom?

    Regards, Bala.

    Use of Configure to Order (CTO) Blank Purchase Agreement
    Summary:
    How can we have a configured item purchased with the capability to select options.
    Content:
    We are exploring the use of CTO Blanket Purchase Agreement. In our understanding, Purchasing Cloud can support negative amounts in a CTO flow. In this case, A standard model is ordered and the user select some options with negative Purchase price. For example, the user selects a configuration consisting of a standard desktop computer with 200GB HDD and 10GB RAM. The, select options which downgrades the HDD to 100GB and the RAM to 5GB. 
     
    In Purchasing Cloud, the lines would be appear as:
    •        Standard Desktop: $2000
    •        100GB HDD downgrade: -200
    •        5GB RAM downgrade: -100
     
    Net Price: $1700
    Upon Order, a PO line is created for $1700.

    Hi,

    We are looking for options to use custom report to pull the close schedules for PO as the parameter to pull in the close schedule is not sufficeient to pull the right data like pulling PO based on Supplier etc.

    Can we copy paste the custom output and delete the data pulled by the standard parameter and upload it? Will this worrkaround work?

    I tried few iterations to upload but that did not work. I deleted the existing rows in the ADF excel and inserted new rows with the action as Close. That did not work. Any ideas on how to manage this?

    I also see a Bug 27843777> - closing purchase order schedules using a spreadsheet for adding some additional parameters  like supplier, Order status etc.

     

    Thanks

    Oracle Self Service Procurement Cloud: How to empower...2

    Oracle Self Service Procurement Cloud: How to empower Requesters to request new suppliers
    Summary:
    How to empower Requesters to request new suppliers
    Content:

    We have received queries via Forum Posts and other channels asking if there was an automated mechanism available for requesters to engage in a supplier registration process. This was seen as as needed by certain organizations that had the following requirements:

    1. Not all requesters were seen as using this feature. This was reserved to specific advanced requesters who worked in the field and had first-hand interactions with potential suppliers on projects
    2. When such requesters wanted to bring in new suppliers into the organization, there was a need to allow them to quickly request the supplier and the ability to automate the registration and approval process to onboard such suppliers
    3. The buying organization in these cases still wanted the ability to review, route and configure the supplier as prospective or spend authorized to ensure due diligence and adherence to corporate policies

    How we have supported this requirement:

    With this intent in mind, we introduced a privilege entitled 'Submit Supplier Registration' as part of Release 11. This privilege was not associated to any of the Self Service Procurement job roles out of the box. Organizations which saw a need to allow their requesters or a subset of them to register new suppliers can choose to assign this privilege to these specific users.

    With this privilege, a new task entitled 'Request New Supplier' will be available to the users from the Shopping Home page. Selecting this task will allow the users to enter all available details to enable creation of the new supplier. Of course, this supplier request will then be routed through the appropriate supplier approval hierarchy that has been configured by the buying organization.

    Once the supplier request is approved, the new supplier is created either as a Prospective or a Spend Authorized supplier. This supplier will then be available to the requesters to select on their shopping flows including the Enter Requisition Line or Create Non-Catalog Request and so on.

    Implementation Considerations:

    1. Use this feature selectively based on genuine need so as to not proliferate rogue supplier requests which increases the processing and administration time and costs for the buying organization
    2. Remember the supplier will be created in the context of the Requisitioning BU that the user belongs to and the corresponding Procurement BU. This information is relevant in understanding how and in what Business Units the supplier sites are created in case of a Spend Authorized supplier
    3. Note that the supplier business relationship (whether Prospective or Spend Authorized) will be based on the default configuration value in the Configure Supplier Registration and Profile Change Request setup. The requester does not have the option to make that determination
