GOA not picked up as source of supply in R/3 when converting PR to PO


We are currently using SRM 5.0 extended classic scenario. Here we are using Global outline agreements which will get replicated to backend R/3 system and can be used as source of supply while converting a Purchase requisition to Purchase order. The aim is to use Global outline agreements instead of Info records which will be more flexible.

Once MRP run is done, based on requirement Purchase requisitions are created. Using ME57 we convert the PRs to Purchase orders by assigning source of supply. At this point I would expect the GOA to be picked up,whcih is created against this product. But this is not happening as of now.

Please let me know if there is configuration or prerequisites that need to be done for this.

Also when I am trying to assign the GOA manually in PR, it is throwing the error as 'Item category of contract does not match with Item category in PR', even though both has Item category as 'Standard'.

    GOA is not source of supply Indeed.

    whatever you have distributed the GOA as a Purchasing contract is a real source of supply.

    if the contract is available in ECC , then it is a valid source of supply for your purchase request.

    Can you use the same contract for any other manual / PM /PS purchase request?

    Are you assigning same material contract to your purchase request ?

    the problem is for only MRP PRs or all PRs.
