GP and Item rate bidding in same RFQ


We have a client requirement whereby the same RFQ contains both a service item as well as a material item. The service item is based on Percentage bid (GP Bid) and the item bid is through item rate. The vendor who quotes the lowest for the combination of the service and item rate gets the contract.

The issues faced in configuring this are:

1. For GP bid, we use document type AB. But AB won't allow an item with "Standard" item category. Hence Material codes cannot be added to AB document type.

2. For a normal material bid, the service amounts are not carried over and hence percentage bidding cannot be used.

Has anyone faced a situation like this. I understand that price comparison is pretty rudimentary in ERP. Any suggestion regarding this would be very helpful.

    I hope you can't bid together with one RFQ having Material and service.

    I have checked the scenario.. Your two option is correct.

    You have to differentiate the RFQ having material and service.

    Hi Dev,

    Apologies for the late reply. The scenario is similar to a SAP implementation, where the client wants the vendor to provide both the hardware(Material) and Consulting(Service) and the one with the lowest overall wins. Only that the service is based on GP-Bid. We did this through a custom routine in pricing and a BDC.

    An enhancement SRVQUOT also exists for i,porting/exporting prices for services but for some reason we discovered that after the development phase was complete.
