This profile is intended for low frequency, non-repetitive ordering of goods and services, itemised or otherwise.
This profile describes a process comprising only an electronic (purchase) order. It allows for electronic ordering of goods and services/services that are non-standard or not easily described in catalogues.
The order may refer to a framework agreement for its terms and conditions; otherwise the customer’s terms and conditions apply.
The order may contain items (goods or services) with item identifiers and items with free text description. Because of this, the internal processes for transaction handling at the supplier are expected to require manual intervention.
This process is intended to result in acceptance or rejection of the order in full, but such responses are external e.g. by phone or email.
This profile can be used with little or no integration to ERP systems.
