Service procurement and external staff request


Hi Experts,

Could you please help me to understand the confusion between service procurement classic and external staff request?

Service procurement happens mainly in ECC MM system and is sent to SRM system only for sourcing. The follow-up document like po or contract happens in ECC system. The scenario is basically supported in classic scenario. In case of extended scenario, the scenario is supported till the creation of Bid invitation. The basic reason for this limitation is that SRM does not support hierarchy in purchase order or contract till 7.0.

However, in case of externall staff request (where mainly standalone scenario is used), hierarchy is supported in all documents like shopping cart and its follow on document purchase order, confirmation.

So, in such cases, should we take external staff hiring as a special scenario? Any clarification is highly appreciated.
