    Dear Srinivasa,

    Have you tried this process with a purchaser user, who has only purchaser role assigned and not a manager role?

    This may work, after the RFx Response has been approved by an approver user with manager role and with the price, the bidder has submitted. After the approval, the response is accessible again to the purchaser user. This time, the purchaser user could change the price instead of the bidder.

    But the second version of this process could work as well. Would it not work, that instead of manager and purchaser user, simply the bidder user changes the new price of the rfx response?

    Best regards,

    Tamas

    • Hello Laurent,

      Exactly as you described. If surrogate bidding is configured, the purchaser can submit a response on behalf of the bidder.

      Each company should decide, if they use this option or not and is compliant with their processes.

      But what Srinivasa wants to achieve, that the approval user could change the price during the approval of the response, is not possible due to legal issues.

      Best regards,

    Hello,

    you will need to do a second round by creating a new RFx.

    I do not remember if you can create a new RFx based on a Bid Invitation as reference.

    Regards.

    Laurent.
