Supplier's Previous Round Price As Start Price For New Rounds Is Not Enforced (Doc ID 1992219.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Sourcing - Version 12.2.2 to 12.2.4 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle Sourcing, Release 12.2.3, when a new round of an auction is created and the document control parameter “Enforce supplier's previous round price as start price for this round” is enabled on the auction, the supplier's start price is not being defaulted when the supplier goes to enter a bid (quote) on the second round of the auction.

It is expected that the supplier's bid price from the first auction be defaulted as the price value on the bid line during creation of the second round bid.


Steps To Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps in Oracle Sourcing:
1. Create first auction and publish the auction. One line.
2. Create a surrogate bid on behalf of the supplier, with bid line price of 200. Submit the bid.
3. Close the auction.
4. Create a new round for the same auction. On the auction controls, the parameter "Enforce supplier's previous round price as start price for this round" is enabled.
Publish the auction.
5. Log in as the supplier user and proceed to enter the bid on the second auction round. The Price field on the bid line does not default, whereas it is expected that the bid line price should have defaulted as "200".

(Side issue: the supplier user is able to submit a bid price of 300 (which is higher than my price in the first round) which should not be able to happen, as the auction control "Supplers are required to lower the line price when submitting a revised response" is enabled.)



Business Impact

Due to this issue, suppliers users cannot see their initial bid price when submitting a second round of bidding on the auction.
