Precedence: Contract Vendor or Internal Catalog Vendor


I have a question regarding contracts & internal catalog.

We have a Contract 1 for product category A to Vendor 1

We have Material 1 with fixed source of supply Vendor 2 in our internal catalog.

When a user buys "Material 1" from internal catalog with fixed supplier "Vendor 2" the vendor is changed to contract 1 vendor "Vendor 1".

My question is, is this standard behaviour? Does product category contract vendor take precedence over internal catalog fixed supplie?

    Hello onyo

    totally different .

    product category source of supply is describe procurement - special request.

    material procure via catalog contract is totally different.

    for eg.

    if the contract is created for product category - you can use for both purpose

    one is via describe procurement

    second one is internal goods and services

      Per my understanding your sceneario as follows:

      Material -1 belongs to the Product category A. You are having contract for product category A with Vendor -1.

      As per source of supply determination, Contract will be having more priority than the internal catalog.

      Due to this system is not considering the vendor assigned in your internal catalog.
