Oracle Fusion Self Service Procurement Cloud Service - Version 11.1.10.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Currently, there is no item level mapping for punchout. Typically for inventory goods, extract these items into the iProcurement catalog and host it locally rather than doing a punchout.
Advised customer to use local catalogs for inventory items.

The current process requires a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) in order to automatically source inventory items from a supplier at the correct price. Where the supplier is also a punchout supplier and we have therefore agreed with that supplier that requisitions will be created through the punchout process then it makes no sense to have to maintain a Blanket Purchase agreement for the same set of items. We understand that the BPA could be maintained either internally or by the supplier through the supplier portal, however this builds inefficiencies into the process by having to maintain the same data set in two different places.
