Symptoms

Multiple purchase orders are created from a single requisition where there are multiple Requisition Lines that are ordered by Description Only (ad-hoc) and all are for the same Vendor.

On the Sourcing Controls tab, resides the 'Consolidate with other Reqs' flag. When ordering items by description, this flag is unchecked. As such, the requisition lines are not consolidated onto a Single PO.

This is causing a lot of Purchase Orders to be raised for a given vendor during the same day. In turn this causes the many Purchase Orders to go for individual approval and also, in certain cases, bypassing further approval levels as the PO's individually do not meet the amount criteria but, the sum of all the PO amounts would qualify for further approval.

In such cases, the Business Needs demand that the Requisitions are consolidated into a single PO so that all the relevant approvals levels met.
