Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Purchase Order (PO) and Requisition amounts match but the total price does not.

Example of data from Purchase Order - Data Collection script <NOTE: 549347.1>:

 PO# 765342
  pol.UNIT_PRICE = 80.00
  pol.amount = 8500
  pol.FROM_HEADER_ID = 689140
  pol.FROM_LINE_ID = 883791
  poll.price_override = 80.00
  poll.amount = 8500

Req# 102724
Req amount:
  prl.UNIT_PRICE = 85.00
  prl.QUANTITY = 100
==>
amount = 8500

Replication steps:
1. Created a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for a Job (Business Analyst), agreed rate - USD 80 / hr, option 'Allow price override' checked and amount limit set to USD 90 / hr.
2. Created an Approved Supplier List (ASL) for the commodity / supplier combination
3. Created a Contingent Worker Request for the job (Business Analyst), with ASL reference supplier details with BPA reference defaulted, indicated rate at 80 and Rate negotiable set to Yes and rate limit indicated as 90.
4. Selected 85 as the rate and completed the requisition and approvals
5. PO is automatically generated based on the workflow setting
6. On the PO, the price is indicated as 80, the requisition price is 85. It appears that the price is overridden based on the BPA price.
