SRM7 SUS Contact Person

Dear gurus,

We are analyzing the implementation of the SUS with SAP SRM 7.

We will use the RFx Submission Outside the SAP SRM Firewall that will allow bidders to submit RFx responses and bids outside the SAP SRM system firewall.

My question is the following. Since the supplier won't have access to the SRM system, where their contact persons have to be created? I suppose that directly in SUS. If yes, the contacts persons maintenance has to be performed by the purchaser or by the same suppliers that have been registered in the SUS sysetm and accepted as bidders?

Thanks in advance.

      Hi Vinay,

      You mentioned that ther will be just one code number for the bidder/supplier.

      In case you don't use the XI scenario and you have transferred the suppliers in SRM once accepted in SUS, how do we manage to have the same supplier code in ECC?

    In your case as the bidders need to access both SRM and SUS systems, contact persons has to be created in both SRM and SUS systems.

    The steps are as follows.

    1. The supplier registers itself in SUS. Purchaser preselects and transfers the bidder to ECC.

    2. Vendor master is created in ECC.

    3. Through BBPGETVD the vendor master needs to be transferred to SRM system.

    4. From ECC system again the vendor will be transferred to SUS syem to update the bidder in SUS org str.

    5. Mail will be trigger to the bidder with temporary ID and password.

    6. Bidder creates the actual contact person with appropriate role. The contact person details gets distributed to both SRM and SUS server with the mapped roles assignen in customising.

    Now if single sign on is activated in portal bidder seamlessly access both SRM and SUS for different functionality(in your case participate for the bid in SRM system).

    With Regards,

      When Supplier log in with one time user ID and password and creates a permanent ID and password, contact persons are created in both SUS and SRM system. It creates both SU01 user and business partner for the new user in both the system.

      No separate manual approval/transfer is required.

      With Regards,
