Consolidation of RFQ for Different Companies


My client is currently in the midst of consolidating its Supply Chain department as a start towards the shared services model in the near future.

However, this shared SCM department serves various subsidaries and joint venture, which naturally has different company codes in the system, and there is no plan to form a new company for this shared service as of now. Thus, purchases are made "on behalf".

However, to ensure process efficiency, we would like to consolidate the RFQ process where we merge PRs for similar materials into one quotation to be sent to vendors where seperate POs will then be raised based on one unified pricing across companies.

We've tested it in the system and apparently RFQ is controlled by company code where we cannot include line items from different company codes. Are there any alternatives around this requirement? Basically, we would want to:

1. PRs are still raised by individual companies

2. ONE RFQ is created from all these PRs with similar materials/services (c0nsisting of multiple companies/plants)

3. ONE RFQ is submitted to vendors

4. POs are created based on the same price for each company

Thanks in advance.
