There is no option for an expert user to purchase some items on priority, by mentioning the follow-on document type as Purchase Order or Contracts for those Shopping Cart items and avoid bidding process. As a result he/she might have to wait till the entire biding process is over.
There is an option for users with specific authorization to control the follow-on document that can be created for a shopping cart item which are relevant for sourcing. Purchaser can assign the follow-on documents applicable for items in a shopping cart. These follow-on documents appear against the items in the Carry Out Sourcing screen.
