Auto sourcing builds and dispatches a purchase order from a requisition without the manual intervention of a buyer. Once a requisition receives its approval in workflow, it is automatically sourced into a purchase order. If the products on the requisition have SFS Item Numbers assigned, the requisition will auto-source into a PO with the status of Approved and be dispatched. If the products on the requisition do not have SFS Item Numbers assigned, the requisition will auto-source into a PO with the status of Pending Approval. This will be reviewed by a buyer before being dispatched. Most products in the eMarketplace have SFS Item Numbers assigned. SFS Item Number assignment depends on the type of catalog and is done by the OGS eMarketplace team.
