Goal

How to create Procurement Group for set of people (e.g Buyers) irrespective their Business Units (BU)?

Requirement:
All "Buyers" need to belong to a procurement group regardless of their BU.
By creating a “Procurement Group” concept we can organize teams regardless of BU or Region.
In the future we could also have “external partners” or “outsourced” procurement groups
buying on our behalf so this concept is needed for that reason.

Example:

For ABC business unit, users buy on behalf of ABC in DEF, GHI and XYZ BUs.
All SCM user must belong to a Procurement Group.


Is there any feature called Groups to include specific set of people into that group irrespective of their BU?
How to achieve above requirement?
