Awarding alternate lines and create purchasing documents for them in a negotiation


In a negotiation, as a category manager, you can award alternate lines offered by the supplier and create purchasing documents for them. The following steps may be followed for the same:

  • A supplier submits a response having alternate lines in the negotiation.
  • The category manager closes the negotiation.

  • In award line page under "Compare and Award Lines" table, click on "Actions" -> "Add or Remove Responses" -> Select response having alternate line in it from "Available Responses" section to "Selected Responses" section -> click OK.

Howdy, Stranger!
