    Yes, in order to be able to Enable the feature of the Contract Terms  and use the Contract Template attachment in Purchase Orders you will need to obtain the Procurement Contracts Licence. The reason is simple, you would need to enable the Procurement Contracts function, Contract Terms Template are defined and maintained in the contract application although you can directly use it under the Purchase Orders.

    We also have the need for retainage in Oracle Fusion, this is a step back from our Legacy System.  The Workarounds are not practical.  We pay on a percentage complete at the end of each month for each line item, not on completed milestones and setting companies up as a withholding tax entity, we pay too many different companies to do this.  Please people comment on this more, we need Oracle to fix this problem.

    Nitin,

    Thanks for your inputs. After your response, I cross checked my BPA once again and  noticed that the 'Allow Price Override' flag was not set for these lines. My bad. Apologies for that.

    When I loaded now with the flag set, 7,3,4 got taken as prices for case1,2,3.

    Hence, based on the testing and your inputs, Can I conclude as below?

    1. If 'Allow price override' flag is 'No' , then,
      1.  FBDI program will always take the BPA line price and stamp on the PO line.The price specified in FBDI file is not considered.
      2. PO FBDI upload program currently takes only the BPA line price. Currently it does not respect BPA price breaks.
    2. If 'Allow price override' flag is 'Yes', then
      1. Price present in the FBDI file is taken.

    Ism't conclusion point 1.2 (BPA price breaks not being respected) a defect? 

    Regards,

    Niamath

    Hi Niamath,

    Thanks for the clarification. I am in the process of getting more insight internally. Will revert once I know more.

    From my understanding:

    1. Case 1 - should have returned $7 as the allow price override flag is checked.

    2. Case 2 - should have returned price $3 as long as you have mentioned this on the PO line price in the import template and allow price override as Y. (Same as Case 1). As far as I know price breaks are not supported in the FBDI template.

    3. Case 3 - The FBDI PO import does not honor price breaks at this time. This is an ER and ideally, in most cases, functionality available in the UI and in the FBDI Import should match. Will revert with additional information once I know more.

    Regards

    Nitin,

    1. For line 1 on the PO FBDI template for qty of 10 where the price is $7 and is not to be derived from a BPA, the Source Agreement Number and Source Agreement Line Number fields should be blank. This implies that this PO line is not coming from any specific BPA. Is this case, with these 2 fields as null, after import, the price should be $7

    • This is a case where the PO is based on the BPA. BPA has 'Allow override flag =Y' and hence the PO has a different price than the BPA one. 

    2. For line 2 on the PO FBDI template, as you have mentioned a price of $3, is your expectation that the price should be $3 after import (that this price overrides any other price coming from the BPA)? Would the Allow Price Overide flag be checked in the PO Import template?

    • This is a clean case. PO qty is 40 which falls in BPA 2nd slab whose price is 3. The PO price is also 3. Hence, after import, price should have been 3. However, Oracle seems to be stamping a price of 4. I am trying to understand the reason behind it.

    3. For the 3 case for importing a quantity of 60, since you have specified a null value in price, the system takes into account the BPA Line price of $ 4. It does not look at price breaks, but, looks only at the BPA line price for the item. This is happening as per design and you are getting a value of $4. Is this your expectation given that the import program does not take into account the price breaks during import.

    • Should it not respect the price break and take 2 as the price since 60 qty falls in that slab? If i do this on UI, it will take the price break price. Why is the behavior different for FBDI import? Why does the program not take price breaks into account during import?

    Regards,

    Niamath

    Hi Niamath,

    From the above, would your expectation be as follows? Please comment on each of the 3 points below.

    1. For line 1 on the PO FBDI template for qty of 10 where the price is $7 and is not to be derived from a BPA, the Source Agreement Number and Source Agreement Line Number fields should be blank. This implies that this PO line is not coming from any specific BPA. Is this case, with these 2 fields as null, after import, the price should be $7

    2. For line 2 on the PO FBDI template, as you have mentioned a price of $3, is your expectation that the price should be $3 after import (that this price overrides any other price coming from the BPA)? Would the Allow Price Overide flag be checked in the PO Import template?

    3. For the 3 case for importing a quantity of 60, since you have specified a null value in price, the system takes into account the BPA Line price of $ 4. It does not look at price breaks, but, looks only at the BPA line price for the item. This is happening as per design and you are getting a value of $4. Is this your expectation given that the import program does not take into account the price breaks during import.

    Thanks

    Has anyone found a white paper/document that outlines how to use the BPM worklist... like detailed instructions? I only have a document for how to use advanced mode: a worked example, but I was looking for something more general.

  • Himanshu Chaudhary

    Thanks everyone.  Document was really helpful regarding SFO flow

  • Deepak Padhy

    Hi Himanshu - To answer your query "cases where the Sold to LE/Bill to BU needs to be from a different Ledger compared to Req BU then we might need Financial Orchestration flows" - You will need SFO flow if you want system to generate the Interco AP/AR invoice automatically and if you want the interco trx will happen at a different price, then the SFO flow must be exit between Sold to BU and Receiving BU. This is the global PO flow.

    You can check below link for the corresponding set up of sold to BU and Receiving BU belongs to the different ledger.

    Thanks Niamath and the link was useful.

    Also, for cases where the Sold to LE/Bill to BU needs to be from a different Ledger compared to Req BU then we might need Financial Orchestration flows.

    Paul,

    I think an ER on similar lines is already raised. 

    An idea raised in IDea lab here seems to have been declined. A workaround has been suggested though.
