  • In this tutorial we learn about The requisition life cycle begins with a request for goods or services from someone in your organization. A requester must then enter the requisition and forward the requisition to the person or persons responsible for approving the accounting distribution and amounts. However, requisition approval is optional.

    • 31:10
  • In this tutorial we learn about Invoice approval, also called check authorization, is a document that lists the steps and documents required before an invoice can be paid. In other words, this is the approval process that the accounting department must perform before it is allowed to cut a check for the purchase of goods.

    • 38:17
  • In this lecture session we learn about A demand aggregation contract that was established to combine purchases of common goods and services to yield better value for money through economies of scale. In an organization where common goods and services are not consolidated, the procurers are unaware of what the others are purchasing.

    • 42:18
  • In this lecture session we learn that Catalog is a tool for creating living style guides for digital products. It combines design documentation and assets with real, live components in one single place.

    • 45:01
  • In this lecture session we learn about A catalog is a grouping of codes that belong together content-wise with which qualitative subjects written in text form can be encrypted in a form that can be processed automatically. You use catalogs in Warranty Processing when you enter items for a version.

    • 56:51
  • In this lecture session we learn that Contract compliance refers to observance of the norms and procedures outlined in a contract. Often, this involves periodic reviews of an existing contract to determine adherence to compliance mandates and protocols and check for deviations.

    • 52:38
  • In this tutorial we learn about A document created by the magistrate describing the conditions under which the Defendant will be released from custody or held until trial. This can be related to multiple cases, but some counties require a one-to-one relationship with the initiating process.

    • 1:11:51
  • In this lecture session we learn about The creation of a purchase order is the first step in a business transaction, it is issued by the buyer and authorizes a seller to provide a product or service at a specified price. The invoice is a bill issued by the seller when that product has been delivered or the service has been completed.

    • 50:40
  • In this tutorial we learn about A Purchase Invoice is a bill you receive from your Suppliers against which you need to make the payment.

So when the budgets are allocated and all the information is actually provided in an SAP ERP system, the same data should also be incorporated into Ariba procurement solution. So whenever a requisition happens there is one more validation that happens at your SAP Ariba system where the budget check happens one more time. This is more sort of a validation which is done against the budget allowance for that particular sector.

So if your current order is actually exceeding the budget allowance it will automatically let you know that you have actually crossed the allowance and also restricts you to spend.
