Buyer Work Centre (BWC) is a centralized dashboard in Oracle Purchasing that helps a Buyer or Procurement officer to perform and analyze all the procurement activities. BWC incorporates Oracle Purchasing, Sourcing, Procurement Contracts, Analytics etc. to provide the user all the key purchasing functionalities in a single dashboard. You may see the negotiations, contracts, intelligence etc but you need have licenses for related modules such as Sourcing, Procurement Contracts etc. to use the functionalities.
To have suppliers connect and participate on RFQ/RFI, you need to use Sourcing module.
You can then create RFQ/RFI, invite suppliers, have them create their quote and evaluate these quotes. You can then award and create PO from Sourcing award.
Thanks for your reply. So without enabling the sourcing module, i can't use the RFQ/RFI process in Oracle? Even if its available as part of the Buyers workbench? Please confirm.
