Purchasing Groups

Hi all,

We have created one central purchasing organisation. For administration purpose we have created 5 purchasing groups. How do we relate the purchasing groups to the purchasin organisations.Do we have to do a direct assignment or do we have to indirectly configure.

Please reply with details.


Terrence John.


Dear Tommy John,

There is no configuration for the Purchasing group and Purchase organisation.

We create Purchasing groups(Buyers Group) under the subdivision of the Purchase Organisation.

We can customise the Purchasing groups through the funcational authorisations.

For this,

Define Buyers' Functional Authorisations in the customizing for Purchasing, there we can unmark PO w/o reference allowed.

Buyer's Functional Authorisation, like ''123'' create with <b>T.Code OMET</b>

Assign ''123'' to a Parameter ID ''456'' with the <b>T.Code SU52</b>

Mostly this Purchasing group authorisations will be give BASIS consultants. Pls approch them for more clarity in this regard.

With regards,
