Why does Oracle Select a BPA as the source vs. Inventory when an internally orderable is requested?

Summary: Client user searches shop by category for an item and adds to his cart, item is internally orderable and has transactable quantity available in Inventory but Oracle selects a BPA (item is defined on BPA) as the source rather than Inventory. The client wants to always fulfill a request from Inventory when transaction quantity is available in Inventory. Why does Oracle source from the BPA vs Inventory?

Client user creates a requisition line using "More Task" Enter Requisition Line and populates item number and requisition is submitted for approval and is approved and becomes a Transfer Order.

The same inventory item is used in each use case outlined above. Item is defined in inventory org as well as defined on a BPA.

Howdy, Stranger!
