RFQs & Quotations
Requisitions are bundled up together and purchasing department creates requests for quotation (RFQs) and send them out to vendors.
RFQs, like other documents in Procurement application have a form of header-lines. RFQ header represents an document/request that is sent to specific vendor on specific date. Lines of this RFQ contain bundled requisition lines - item, quantity and date.
RFQ line is linked with requisition line it was copied from.
Once vendors send quotations for RQFs they are saved in the system in quotations and quotation_lines tables. This is done as a copy of RFQ that can be manually adjusted.
Quotation header represents a document sent by vendor. Each separate document/package and version is saved in a separate quotation header.
Quotation headers are linked with RFQ header. There can be more than one quotation header linked with RFQ header.
