Symptoms

On 12.0.6 find in R12 the Payables System Setup contains the default for suppliers in E-Business Suite; control and payment default options are setup here.

The options in this form are used across the Payables product regardless of the Operating Unit. When a new supplier is entered the information in those fields is defaulted automatically from the Payables System Setup.

The problem with control and payment options is that in a multi-country environment this would be different by Operating Unit.

The way the system is working now, a user would need to change the control and payment options for each supplier when working in an operating unit where the business needs are different than the ones setup for the Payables product.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------------------
Expect the Supplier default options to be available for setup at the Operating Unit level.

-- Business Impact:

Due to this issue, users in a multi-country environment need to modify the defaults on each manually entered new supplier to the Operating Unit needs, this makes the system prone to user entry errors and is impractical.
