Global Vendor Ordering Address


We have a scenario where we want to have GLOBAL contract with a vendor who has manufacturing unit globally.

I want to create a single contract and a single vendor and a single GLOBAL CONTRACT.

Now say one plant in US wants to create contract with vendor who has manufacuring unit in US , How can i create a PO RELEASE ORDER with US adress?

Now say OUR German plant wants to create a PO Release order with refernce to same contract with vendor which has manufacturing unit in "say" France. How can we have a local ordering adress of france ?

Hi Anil,

When you create a global (central) contract, you can specify the company code in the header and NO plant in the line item.

When you reference this contract to create a Call-off PO, you then specify the plant, in your example, the US or french plant. The delivery address therefore will be copied from the plant.

With the Vendor ordering address, you can create different vendor masters (only require general and purchase org level data) for the ordering units. Then assign them as partner function OA (ordering address) to the main vendor you create the contract with. Then when you create the call-off POs, the system will prompt you to select a OA partner.
