Issue with Inter-company purchasing with multiple rates

Many contingent workers have multiple Purchasing Rates (e.g. Specific rate on Internal Projects and higher rate on Customer Project). With that expectation we need more than one PO line for the contingent worker.

We purchase on Cost Center for contingent workers working on an inter-company project. We create the PO on Cost Center, assign a cost rate and an ICO rate to the personnel number in the app “Manage Cost Rates – Services” and the system generates the inter-company invoicing. The contingent worker will then invoice the company where the PO and contract sit.

In that case, only one PO line needs to be valid for the contingent worker, otherwise it will multiply the number of tasks in timesheet app by the number of PO line active. It also multiplies the line if a PO on project also exist, but the system does not prevent time posting. It’s very not convenient for the contingent worker and create a lot of maintenance and support on the back end with creating issues in replication of time coming from the external timesheet system.

Due to the system behavior of duplicating time entries, it creates wrong postings in GRIR accounts, creates reconciliation efforts, creates confusion for the contingent workers that need to send his timesheet, therefore more work on the back end, and we need to prevent this.

The adoption of this influence request would allow us to at least have a workaround for this issue, because Purchasing on Cost Center is also required.
