    Framework order is also known as Blanket PO.....which we use for the procurement of Low value Material with Long term planning....It is used as Mini Contract....

    Blanket Order:

    Used for long validity period and with the provided value limit. By its name u201Cblanketu201D which covers to required long time? We use doc type FO(for long period) and item cat. B(for value limit).Goods receipts or the entry and acceptance of services performed are not necessary in the case of a blanket PO and limit items. The invoices are posted directly with reference to the purchase order, provided that the specified value limit is not exceeded. But manual entry of invoiced amount and invoiced quantity is required during LIV process.

    Example: Procurement of stationary items.

    Frame work order:

    Framework order (FO) is a document type which is provided by the standerd SAP.

    It can be used for the consumable material ( Which is having low value & where making GR is not of worth like C category item.) & called as blanket PO. Here we need to mntion the validity period & target value or quantity as a restriction as well as need to mention item category as a "b".

    Also it can be used for the procurement of extarnal services (Item category "D" ). Here we need to do the entry of services which have been performed & need to accept the same whereas in blanket PO, GR is not required.

    At the end i would tel u that Framework order is the document type which can be used as blanket Po & procurement of services.

    The Blanket Order is one special type of Framework Order (as they share the same purchasing document type FO).

    Since 'B' Item Category is typically used in Blanket Order

    While Framework Order uses other types of Item Category.

    The differences are found out in the settings of such Item Category such as -

    A) We do not need to make any posting of GR/SES in case of Blanket PO
    B) Material No. is not required at all in Blanket PO;
    C) Account Assignment Category is mandatory in Blanket PO

    Cheers !!!
