Purchase order against contract


I created a PO referring a contract. For this PO document type, the start validity date and validity end fields ( which appears in additional data tab in PO header for framework orders) are made active and made mandatory.

I was allowed to enter a validity date in PO header which is prior to contract validity start date. (eg: Contract starts from 1.1.2011 , but PO validity start date is pot as 25.12.2010.). This is functionally wrong.

Isnu2019t there any standard validation to check PO validity start date beyond contract validity start date ?

In the concept of Framework order , whether contract is not referred to create FO? If yes, then system is not expected to validate the fields (start validity date and validity end fields) which are exclusively maintained for preparing only FOs with contract validity.

Please advise.
