Buyer Assignment hierarchy on a requisition converted to an order



I do hope this brief article helps clarify the logic of how the system computes a buyer for a given requisition line when converting to a purchase order


A buyer is a mandatory element of a purchase order. If one does not exist, neither does a purchase order. If a requisition cannot determine a valid buyer, the requisition is placed in the Process Requisitions queue for the buyer (with the appropriate access) to review said requisitions and help create an order.


In Self Service Procurement, you can add a suggested buyer as a requester. I have covered this facet in a different customer connect article. (Please review that for context).

Howdy, Stranger!
