PDF Of Sourcing Event Is Sent With The Bid Invitation Notification Prior To The Event Preview Date

(Doc ID 2353861.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 27, 2018

Applies to:

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


On : 9.2 version, Email Notification

The pdf report of the sourcing event, which includes detailed information about the event, is sent with the bid invitation notification. This would be acceptable if this notification was not sent until the event preview date. However, it is sent at the time the event is posted (prior to preview date). All bidders who are explicitly invited receive this detailed event information prior to the preview date. This can create an unfair advantage for these bidders.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create Event with start and preview date of 10 days later
2. Approve the event
3. Email will be trigger to invited suppliers/bidders before the preview date.
