Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sourcing and Contracting work center
  2. Go to the view RFQs and Quotes
  3. Select Quotes sub view
  4. Select the relevant Quote
  5. Edit and navigate to document flow
  6. Purchasing contract not created automatically


In the request for quotation (RFQ) processes buyers can find sources of supply for materials and services requested in purchase requests to create a purchase order (RFQ for Purchase Order). They can also negotiate or renegotiate contracts with several suppliers (RFQ for Contract) or renew already existing contracts with the current supplier (Purchasing Contract Renewal).

RFQ incoming processes related to documents that lead to the creation of requests for quotation:

  • Purchase request processing, in which you or the system can transfer completed purchase requests into purchase orders based on defined criteria such as source of supply.
  • Purchasing contract processing, which allows you to create and maintain purchasing contracts.

Depending on RFQ type, RFQ for Purchase Order or RFQ for Contract or Purchasing Contract Renewal, follow-on processes are triggered automatically. This means, a purchase order is created and sent and then listed in the Purchase Orders view, or a contract is renewed or created with status In Preparation and can be edited further in the Contracts view.


While creating RFQ, you have to select RFQ Type i.e. RFQ for Contract. Once you send the RFQ to bidders, system will create a Supplier Quote. When you compare two quotes and award one of them, system automatically creates a purchasing contract. So you must specify the RFQ type while creating Request for Quotation document.
