When Copying A Requisition to Cart, the Suggested Buyer Name Is Cleared (Null)  

When copying a previously approved requisition to cart, the "Suggested Buyer" field is cleared, forcing users to re-enter (something we require for our business process).  We recently completed an upgrade from 12.0.6 to 12.2.4.  This behavior was not present in 12.0.6.

The Suggested Buyer should not be cleared.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. iProcurement > Requisitions
2. On the requisition tab, select a requisition and click the "Copy to Cart" button
3. "Suggested Buyer" field is cleared
4. User has to assign the buyer again.
This is a tedious process since they do not know what is the buyer that should go to the requisition.
