Buyer ID Prompt not Working in Procurement Contracts as it does on Purchase Orders

(Doc ID 2156000.1)

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Buyer ID prompt not working in Procurement Contracts like it does on Purchase Orders.  The Buyer ID prompt in Procurement Contracts pulls all Buyer ID's irrespective of Buyer setup for User. The list of available Buyers is limited on the Purchase Order Buyer lookup.   

The Users are expecting only to see the Buyers that are allowed per the User Preferences setup.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set User - VP1 with Authority only for VP1 and WENDYCHO
2. From the Purchase Order page, only VP1 and WENDYCHO show as valid values in the Buyer Look up.
3. From the Contract, there are multiple places for the Buyer Look up. In all, all Buyers were displayed in the list of valid values.
