Hello Colleagues,

Is there any way to add two suppliers to the same Agreement?

    Hi Sheilla,

    You cannot have more than one supplier for a Master Agreement.

    However, you can create an extension field on the MA and list the second supplier there. But this supplier will not be listed in many of the standard reports and you might have to customize these reports to reflect the additional supplier as well.

    In other words, if you add the additional supplier via an extension field, you have to decide where and when to use it.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

    Devesh

      Hi Devesh,

      Thanks for your response.

      The problem is that we are not allowed to come up with new GAPs (extensions, custom reports).

      Would you consider creation a sub-agreement for the second supplier a good option?

    Hi Sheilla,

    Agreements/Contracts are generally between two parties therefore as part of standard you can add only one supplier on MA. However as pointed out earlier there is always a possibility to create an extension field for Supplier on MA.

    Regards,

    Sheilla, this is a common situation in brazilian contracts but unfortunately you can only have 1 supplier per Master Agreement/Agreement.

    You can follow one of this options

    • Create a Sub-Agreement with the other supplier.
    • Create another Master Agreement and link both of them through Contract Hierarchy (Version 9.0 onwards)
    • Create extension fields in order to show the other vendors just as information (If you have more than two vendor you would have to consider a Collection).

    You should consider the first two options if you are planning to publish those contracts to ECC.

    This restriction is also because on SAP ECC Outline Agreements we can only have one vendor per Contract/Schedule Agreement, so as CLM is integrated with ECC it wouldn't make sense to allow multiple vendors in only one Master Agreement/Agreement.

    BR,
