Process type in SAP ByD project management for a purchase request/purchase order?

In ByD Project management when i am adding services to projects task and creating a purchase request for that service the process type gets automatically selected as Third party. But in the golden demo document the process type is Direct. Can anyone throw some light on why the system is automatically picking process type as third party and not direct order even though i am maintaining the preferred supplier as one of the group companies.

    Hi Manjunath,

    For service items, following process types are possible:

    1. Direct : For the procurement of service, limit, and expense items that are ordered directly for your company, the process type is Direct
    2. Third-Party : For the procurement of service, limit, and expense items that are ordered for a third party, the process type is Third-Party.

    Since the purchase request is created using the project (I am assuming that type of the project is customer project), Means that it would be ordered for the third party (Customer for which the project is raised) and hence the process type here would be the Third party.

    In case of direct cost project, when you create a purchase request, system will automatically select process type as direct.

    I hope this answers to your concerns. Let me know if you need further details.

    Regards,

    Harshal
