Vendor Name with ':' is not being allowed in the system

During Supplier registrations, the vendor name with ':' (Colon) is being allowed by the system.  But after category manager approval when the supplier is being created in the system, the following error occurs:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-20002: 4001: 'ADHOC_USER_B*** ****** DBA: A**** S***_03302022_1325271980993211' is an invalid internal name because it contains a colon. For this particular role, if the name contains a colon, it has to be 'WF_LOCAL_USERS:0' . ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_DIRECTORY", line 1955 ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_DIRECTORY", line 1863 ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_CORE", line 318 ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_CORE", line 315 ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_DIRECTORY", line 1627 ORA-06512: at "APPS.WF_DIRECTORY", line 1936 ORA-06512: at "APPS.POS_SPM_WF_PKG1", line 3004 ORA-06512: at "APPS.POS_REQUEST_UTILS_PKG", line 24 ORA-06512: at line 1

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Supplier Management > Suppliers
2. Choose Operating Unit from LOV
3. Suppliers: Register New Supplier > Fill out required fields
4. Supplier name = TEST_COLON:ISSUE
5. New Supplier Request > Actions LOV: Send to Category Manager Approval
6. Popup confirming Request has been sent to Category Manager
7. Log in as Category Manager to Approve
8. New Supplier Request > Actions LOV: Category Manager Approve
9. Once approved the reported error occurs
