How to use Surrogate bidding process


We are in SRM 5.0 ( SERVER 5.5) ECS.

Trying to use the Surrogate bid process, but iam getting a message that 'Select a bidder with contact person' when i select the bidder. I have activated the allow proxy bidding for all the bidders.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

This error indicates that your bidder (bidding company) contains no contact persons. You would need to create an employee of "contact person" type for your bidder through transaction BBPMAININT (or from the web "manage business partners"), and use the option "Employee for business partner < number >" -> "Create" on the screen. During the creation process, check "Employee is a contact person" checkbox.
