How to disable approved supplier validation for BPA

edited Nov 29, 2019 9:34AM in Purchasing 1 comment


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. 



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."

Howdy, Stranger!
