    Difference between preparer and requestor on a requisition ?

    user10163762

      Hello,

      What is the difference between Preparer and Requester on a requisition ?

      Where is this information stored in the database ?

       

      Is there a standard out of the box report to find this.

      We want a report which gives information on who is raising requisitions on behalf of others.

      This report is a audit report.

       

      Many Thanks,

      Emily

            Preparer - who is preparing the document however requester is who (concern team or department) request the material.  Normally preparer is actual owner of the document and requester will handles the material on the organization once it sent by the supplier.



          Where is this information stored in the database ?


          PO_requisition_Lines_all holds the to_person_id is the requester details and created_by is preparer details.


          Is there a standard out of the box report to find this

             Try the report "Purchase Requisition Status Report", having details of requester & preparer of the requisition.



          regards

            Preparer is the person who actually creates the requisition in the Oracle e-business suite; it may be for the person himself or on behalf of someone else.

            If the person is creating the requisition for himself, then he will be treated both as Preparer and Requester.

            On the contrary, if the person is creating the requisition on behalf of someone else, then he will be treated as Preparer while the person who requested the Preparer to create the requisition on behalf of him will be treated as Requester. For example: A shipbuilder who is working in the dockyard does not have a computer around him calls the procurement officer in the head office to create a requisition for steel plate on behalf of him. Here the shipbuilder is the “Requester” while the procurement officer is the “Preparer”.

            Note that, by default the requisition approval hierarchy is initiated based on Preparer’s approval route.

            Sometimes Preparer is referred as Originator as well.
