1973538 - Purchase Order Created and Sent Automatically Upon Selecting Award Against a Winning Quote/Bid


You have selected Create purchase order manually in the  Purchase request and orders  work center->common task activity Automatic Creation of Purchase Orders.

Later you have created a Request for Quotation for a Product category XYZ and received quote/bid from supplier.

However when you select Award against a winning Quote/Bid, Purchase Order is created automatically with status Sent or Not Yet Acknowledged or In Approval.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Sourcing and Contracting work center.
  2. Select Requests for Quotation view.
  3. Select Published RFQ ID XX and choose Compare Quotes button.
  4. Choose Award button against the winning Quote/Bid.


This Automatic Creation of Purchase Orders allows your buyer whether a purchase order is created automatically or manually from a purchase request.

This setting doesn't apply for Request for Quotation.


So scope the question" Do you want to create a purchase order with the In Preparation status from a supplier quote?"
