How to Create Contract Purchase Order in Sage X3?

By | July 21, 2016

A contract order is a long-term commitment with a supplier concerning one or more products, for a global quantity and value to be delivered. The contract order is further divided in shipment requests that are made as a function of the contract. A contract can also be intercompany or site transfer. These shipment requests are processed via Receipts.

A contract order is made up of Contract detail in the header, product details in lines of product, and a delivery schedule.

To create a Contract Purchase order, Navigate: Purchasing -> Orders -> Open Orders (GESPOC)

  1. Enter the mandatory fields’ contract site, supplier details (address, rate type), receiving site, and payment details.
  2. A contract validity defines the period for which contract is valid e.g. 05/08/15 to 05/08/16.
  3. You can also add transportation details like Delivery mode, Carrier etc.
  4. If this contract has cost center or project dimensions etc., this can be entered in the Analytical grid.
