Invalid pricing showing up for vendor comparison in ME57


Hi Everyone,

We have an issue where we are assigning vendors to our purchase requisitions. Let's take this example:

Vendor A sells product 1000 for $10 and is valid from 1/1/2014 to 8/1/2014.

Vendor B sells product 1000 for $11 and is valid from 3/1/2014 to 12/1/2014.

When assigning a vendor automatically in ME57, it will bring up both vendors and prompt the user to select one. This is problematic because our contracted pricing with vendor A is no longer valid. Is there a way to avoid this? Is there a better way to assign vendors?

Second issue is along the same lines:

Vendor A sells product 2000 for $10 and is valid from 1/1/2013 to 1/1/2014 (so it's no longer valid). When assigning vendors automatically, because this product is only supplied by vendor A, SAP will chose this vendor and pull in the last purchased price. Is this standard SAP for PIR records? Is there a way to make this go to RFQ if the price is no longer valid?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
