    Hi Sas,

    The Sourcing application provides you as the purchaser with all sourcing-relevant information. As the purchaser or the person responsible for the relevant role, you have a comprehensive range of options in the Sourcing application to enable you to determine the most suitable source for a requirement. The Sourcing functions serve the following purposes:

    · Process requirements (for example, create local purchase orders, bid invitations or contracts)

    · Provide information to support your decision-making when determining sources of supply

    Please go through the following link for more information:

    Thanks,

    Pradeep

    The sourcing cockpit helps you, as a professional purchaser, to process your requirements and to determine the best source of supply

    For finding a new source of supply for open requirements, purchasers can create a bid invitation directly from the Sourcing Application.All header information of Shopping Cart is transferred to Bidding Engine

    The Sourcing scenario allows you to receive demands. From there an RFQ is created. After awarding a winner, purchasers can create a PO Or create a contract

    Create Bid from Contract Purchasers receive alerts for expiring contracts.

    Out of these contracts a bid invitation can be created directly

    All the necessary data including conditions will be transferred to Bidding Engine
