In Oracle Sourcing Negotiation or CLM Solicitation

Award RFQ lines to two different suppliers shows that two Purchase Orders (POs) are created, however only one PO is actually created and it contains all the lines rather than just the selected lines awarded to that particular supplier.  The award is not created per the choices made by the Sourcing Buyer.

The buyer choses to award 2 lines to supplier A and 1 line to supplier B, but instead all 3 lines are awarded to Supplier B.  The Award By Line feature does not award the lines correctly.

1. Create and approve Requisition having 3 lines
2. Autocreate the requisition into a sourcing RFQ
3. Specify suppliers and publish the RFQ
4. As supplier A submit quote A for the 3 lines on the RFQ
5. As supplier B submit quote B for the 3 lines on the RFQ
6. Close and unlock the RFQ
7. Award by line
a. Award line 1 to Supplier A
b. Award line 2 to Supplier B
c. Award line 3 to Supplier A
8. Submit award for approval / Submit / Complete Award Go
9. Create Standard Purchase Order for this negotiation Submit
