Criteria for selecting preferred agreement for procurement in case of multiple agreements
We are looking to understand the logic which system applies when there are multiple valid blanket purchase agreements available for sourcing.
This document - PRC:SSP: How Does Source Document (BPA) Defaulting Work in Requisition Processing? ( Doc ID 2384803.1 ) suggests this logic -
If there is more than one matching agreement found using the above criteria, the following rules will apply to select an agreement in order of precedence to choose the most appropriate agreement:
- the agreement owned locally by the requisitioning BU (must also be performing the Procurement business function) will be given preference over other agreements
- the agreement tagged as primary source will be given preference over other agreements
