Receiving Services as Materials in order not to perform goods receipt

Former Member

I am on a project that is implementing SRM in May. The company has decided to upload 15 Vendors for Services and to perform the goods receipts in order to achieve a 3 way match. One of the Vendors (Huge Spend) will not get a goods receipt performed as no one wants to perform the goods receipt (this was just decided yesterday). We will create the shopping cart and SRM PO and pay the invoices in R/3. In order to do this we have to enter the shopping cart as a material in order not to have a goods receipt performed in SRM (as I am told). Has anyone ever experienced this? Is there any problems that we, as a company, may not be aware of Is there someone out there that has experienced this or close to this? Please advise. Thanks

Hi Kimberly,

You can avoid GR creation for your vendor by specifing this in vendor purchasing master data :

- Do not set "GR-Based Invoice Verification"

- Do not set "Goods Receipt Confirmation Expected"

- Set "Invoice Receipt Expected"

If your replicate vendors from R/3, those flags are normaly copied during R/3 vendor replication.

Otherwise you have full control in SRM.

Dear Kimberly

In SRM every implementation requires a backend systems and in any of the Technical scenarios goods receipt can be done in any of the system either in SRM or in R/3.

However we can resrrict the goods receipts not done in SRM by modifying the role in PFCG and remove Confirmation of goods/servies from the role.

This will force the users to do goods receitps in R/3 systems only.

The Leading Po can be created in any of system either in SRM or in R/3.
