Restrict PO Automation to only based on agreements
SummaryHow to restrict automatic PO creation for requisitions based only on Agreement
We have users creating requisitions, using the Advanced Procurement Requester role, and check the 'Negotiated' and enter the 'Suggested Buyer' fields. The system generates a Purchase Order automatically and approves it too.
Is there a way to restrict this behavior to only when the users have a Contract Purchase Agreement that is enabled for 'Automatic Sourcing' and set to 'Automatically Generate Orders and Submit for Approvals'. We do not want the users to be able to generate PO's automatically unless a CPA is associated with the requisition. I do realize that despite the CPA being enabled for Automatic Sourcing and Generate Purchasing Documents with approval submission; we still will have to provide a buyer information either on the requisition line, or buyer assignment rules; as well as check the 'Negotiated' box.
