    How to disable approved supplier validation for BPA
    Topic posted November 29, 2019 by Ivan PenaBronze Crown: 15,000+ Points, tagged Agreements, Approved Supplier List, How-To, Orders, Setup 
    Title:
    How to disable approved supplier validation for BPA
    Content:

    Business Case

    You want to create a blanket purchase agreement (BPA) that include items for which Use Approved Supplier is enabled, and then use it to create approved supplier lists (ASLs) for those items. However, you are not able to submit the BPA for approval because the supplier is not on the approved supplier list for those items. 

     

    Solution

    You can use the profile option "PO_ASL_VALIDATION_FOR_BPA" to skip the blanket purchase agreement submission validation that verifies if the supplier is approved for all items that use approved supplier.

    When this option is disabled, the application will no longer prevent you submitting for approval a BPA that includes items that use approved supplier, even if the supplier is not yet in the list approved suppliers for those items. You can then add the new agreement to an existing ASL or create a new ASL from the agreement using the ESS process "Create ASL Entries."

    How to set up

    You can go to Manage Purchasing Profile Options, select the profile option PO_ASL_VALIDATION_FOR_BPA, set the value to No, and save. Refer to the screenshot below for an example.

    How to enable sourcing of purchase orders to future dated...25.0

    Title:
    How to enable sourcing of purchase orders to future dated agreements
    Content:

    Business case

    When a purchase order sourced  to a purchasing agreement is submitted for approval, Oracle Purchasing Cloud validates that the requested delivery dates on the purchase order schedules fall between the effective dates of the source agreement. Instead, you may want to enable the use of future dated agreements, so that a purchase order can be sourced to a purchase agreement that is not yet effective.

    Solution

    You can use the profile option "PO_REQUESTED_DELIVERY_DATE_VALIDATION" to relax the validation that the requested delivery date must be within the source agreement's effective dates. This applies to both contract purchase agreements (CPA) and blanket purchase agreements (BPA.)

    When this profile option is disabled (i.e, set to No) you can allow submission of purchase orders having purchase order schedules with requested delivery date before the source agreement's start date. 

    Example

    You have created the  following agreements for the same supplier, item, and UOM:

    Agreement Number
    Start Date
    End Date
    123 01-JAN-2019 30-JUN-2019
    456 01-JUL-2019 31-DEC-2019

    A PO with requested delivery date of 01-AUG-2019 will fail submission validation if agreement 123 is referenced, regardless of the profile option setting.

    A PO with requested delivery date of 01-MAY-2019 will fail submission validation if agreement  456 is referenced and the profile option is enabled, but will pass submission validation if the option is disabled. 

    How to set up

    You can go to the Manage Purchasing Profile Options page, select the profile option PO_REQUESTED_DELIVERY_DATE_VALIDATION, set the value to No, and save. Refer to the screenshot for an example.

    Content:

    In Amplifon we have 2 crucial business req.s for 1PC stream project implementation: the client is requiring to hide the PO price on Global Orders, meaning when the PROC BU is different compared with the REQ BU, e.g. PROC BU Global Functions – Corporate BU, REQ BU Netherlands BU (REQ BU = countries where Amplifon is present worldwide), supplier X.

    I know buyers dont belong to Req BUs. They are assigned to function in Procurement BUs.
    I was just trying to underline that the buyers belonging to the Legal entity owner of the orgs where the materials going to be delivered should not see the PROC BU's BPA prices. PROC BU with the Legal entity that is actually buying staff.

    We found and tested this Doc ID 2560166.1 , How to Hide PO Price (Field: 'Ordered') On Purchase Order Page but it is not enough for us as the same user/group of users of a specific country have to be able to create and see all details on orders opened just for their country BU. E.g. PROC and REQ BU = Netherlands BU, supplier Y.

    Looking fwd to your guidance.
    Thanks in adv. & Regards,
    Iulia

    Copy DFF values from Agreement into PO
    Content:

    Hello,

    We have a requirement to copy the DFF values that are entered in an Agreement (either Blanket or Contract) to a Purchase Order, when touch less buying is enabled (Automatic sourcing & automatic generate Orders are enabled in agreement).

    While there are profile options to copy DFF values from Requisition to PO, but there doesn't seem anything to be available to copy DFF values from agreement to PO.

    Please suggest.

    Best regards,

    Saravanan R
