Cross-Product Procurement Enhancements

Integrate and Extend Procurement Using REST Services

In this update, Oracle Procurement Cloud delivers modified REST APIs to enable and simplify integration with external systems.

Purchasing

Create Purchase Order Lines in the Same Sequence as Sales Order Lines

Create purchase order lines for a drop ship purchase order in the same sequence as the lines on the associated sales order. As a buyer, you can now ensure that the sequence of lines on the fulfillment purchase order is the same as that on associated sales order.

Update Account and Budget Date on Budgetary-Controlled Open Purchase Orders

Change account and budget date on open purchase orders, even if subject to budgetary control. You can make the changes if there are no project references on the purchase order distributions. The necessary funds checks and adjustments to funds reservations and encumbrance accounting when applicable are automatically handled based on the updated information.

Review and Recover Purchasing Document Approval Exceptions Using the New Transaction Administration Console

Monitor and review purchasing document approval transactions that are in pending approval status. Using the new Transaction Administration Console, you can recover transactions that are stuck after reviewing the fault details. As an application administrator, you can now respond faster whenever a fault occurs, without needing to involve support, development, and operations.

Capture Supplier Discounts on Purchase Order Lines

Capture discounts from the base price of goods and services. You can specify discounts either in percentage or in amount, and you can specify a reason for the discount.

Route Purchase Orders for Approval to Project Task Managers

Route approvals for purchase orders and purchase order changes to project task managers.

Search and View Purchase Order Information as Line of Business Users

As a line of business user, you can now use deep links embedded in business intelligence reports to drill down and act on purchase orders.

Self Service Procurement

Display Product Packaging String

Display product packaging string with UOM conversion information to users while they are shopping. This information tells users the exact quantity of the items they are purchasing and any other UOMs that the item can be purchased in.

Review and Recover Requisition Approval Exceptions Using the New Transaction Administration Console

Monitor and review requisition approval transactions that are in pending approval status. Using the new Transaction Administration Console, you can recover transactions that are stuck after reviewing the fault details. As an application administrator, you can now respond faster whenever a fault occurs, without needing to involve support, development, and operations.

Route Approvals for Purchase Requisitions to Project Task Managers

Route approvals for purchase requisitions to project task managers.

Display More Punchout Catalogs, Smart Forms, and Information Catalogs on the Shopping Search Results Page

Display more punchout catalogs, smart forms, and information catalogs in the cards view of the Shopping Search Results page. Procurement requesters can view up to 60 results, 20 for each catalog type.

Sourcing

Create Supplier Contracts from Negotiation Award

Create enterprise contracts for awarded suppliers from the negotiation. Leverage Microsoft Word add-in functionality to negotiate contract terms with suppliers as part of the response process.

Apply Internal Cost Factors to Supplier Response

Apply internal cost factors to the supplier’s response amount and analyze the cost of doing business with the supplier to make informed award decisions.

Overall Supplier Response Rank

Show overall ranking of supplier responses based on total response amount to promote competitive bidding.

Score Supplier Requirements Offline

Score Requirements Offline with Team Scoring Spreadsheet

As a scoring team member, evaluate and score requirements for all supplier responses in a spreadsheet, and import it into the application.

Update Scores on Behalf of a Team Member

Update requirement scores on behalf of another team member using offline scoring spreadsheet.

Supplier Model

Expand Supplier Audit Control

Include more attributes to be audited in supplier audit history. Enhance the tracking of changes made to supplier profiles and improve the accuracy of audit controls and governance.

Define User Category for Improved Supplier User Management

Define a unique user category for supplier users, and automatically assign it when supplier user accounts are created. Support a different user name policy and a new user account notification for supplier users, versus for other types of users like employees.
