In the event a Contract (same Supplier, Commodity, Part, etc.) governs more than one Company Code, a new/duplicate contract must be created for each Company Code. It causes significant workload for Contract Owners to duplicate and maintain contracts, reduces spend visibility and adds confusion to Suppliers. It translates into significant waste for the Company and causes frustration of contract owners and Suppliers.
I have created a Customer Influence Request in Ariba Connect: 308624 requesting ability to extend Contract to >1 Company Code. Please vote if able.
Additionally, I've come across other requests created by SAP customers with the same or similar requirements. They have not been actioned due to low number of votes. Thank you.
