Does System allows buyers to choose from the multiple quotes provided by supplier for award???

Hello Everyone,

In Some RFX, we add more than two INCO TERMS(e.g DDP and EXW) and allow suppliers to quote for all the Inco Terms added for the event.

But at the time of awarding what i have observed is that System automatically selects the minimum quote provided by the supplier and it doesn't allow buyers to select from the multiple quotes provided by the supplier for awarding.

e.g Supplier Quotes for DDP(Inco Term) - 100   and For EXW(Inco Term) - 110

Now at the time of awarding system doesn't allow buyers to choose from the two quotes provided by supplier and automatically selects minimum price quote which is DDP(Inco Term) quote 100 in this example 

Whereas we want buyers to select the response on the basis of the preference not the system to select it for buyers.(For e.g buyers should be able to select EXW price 110 and award it)

Is this the normal behaviur of the system??

Is there any way through which we can achieve this??

We are using SAP Sourcing 9.0 system and Unit price as Pricing Structure.

Thanks in Advance and Help will be appreciated

Rakesh

    Hi Rakesh,

    I have run into this issue before, this is the normal behavior of the system.

    The only way around it that I could see is for the buyer to enter the award and delete the system award against the line item and then manually award the line item to the supplier with the correct incoterm.

    I hope this helps.

      Hi Rakesh,

      If you enter the award and click on Actions > Cancel Acceptance you can then change the phase from Completed to In Progress to manually change the award against the line items.
