Allow entering Supplier Item in Negotiation Response

Accepted answer
edited Jul 21, 2020 3:47PM in Sourcing 2 comments


Hi there,

We have a requirement from a customer that it seems that it can not be fulfilled. The process flow will be the next one:

* A negotiation is created entering the internal item information (number and description) on the negotiation lines.

* The outcome of the negotiation is a Blanket Purchase Agreement

The requirement is to allow the supplier to enter its supplier item reference or at least any description change of the item in the response so this information could be forwarded o defaulted in the BPA generated.

The internal item number and description could be totally different from the supplier item number and description. Since in one BPA, the supplier item number can be entered so at least could help to differentiate the item easier when the PO is sent to the supplier, it seems that if the negotiation frow is used, the negotiation response will allow the entering of this information from the supplier response, so the BPA could be craeted with the supplier item or at least with a line description that should be easier to understand by the supplier.

Howdy, Stranger!
