When Using Buyer Work Center to Change Vendor Site - Project/ Task Should Not Be Validated (Doc ID 2073796.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 22, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 to 12.2.5 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.1.3 version, HTML Orders

In Buyer Work Center (BWC) is the functional solution of how to  change vendor site without:
1.) Un-reserving & Re-reserving funds
2.) Change General Ledger (GL) Date automatically (profile option)
3.) Un-reserving Purchase Order(PO) at all.

However, the BWC is validating that the project/tasks must to be open for all distributions.
This validation should not occur for federal customers.

 Federal customers could have a multi-year PO with  each distribution representing a year / budget year / project / task.
 If the customer wants to change the vendor site part way through the PO life , they should not have to "open" project/tasks
 which artificially extending the expenditure date/calendar on the project/task,
 disable Cross Vendor References (CVR),  enable funds, or enable budget years that are closed.

When attempting to query and update purchase order the following error occurs.

Project information on the distribution is not valid. The expenditure item date is not within the active dates of the task

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate Buyer Work Center
2. Find order
3. Change supplier site at the header level
4. Receive error.
