A framework purchase agreement consists of the following: The terms of a framework agreement apply for up to a certain period of time and cover a certain pre-defined quantity or value. You can clearly display the category (K or L) and the type of document associated (LP, WK, MK). Our system includes 154 agreements. Framework agreements are an important issue that we must constantly address in our analysis of procurement data. Unlike individual contracts, which are often ad hoc, framework agreements are constructs for a longer-term business relationship. In this blog, I would like to give you an overview of the framework agreements in SAP® in the purchase module. In addition to the design of the concept itself, I give you an overview of its assignment from the point of view of data analysis, that is, SAP® tables and field levels. A framework contract is a long-term sales contract with a creditor that contains terms and conditions for the equipment to be provided by the creditor. The contract agreed at the central level allows a central purchasing organization to establish a contract with a creditor that is not specific to a single work. In this way, the purchasing agency can negotiate with a creditor using the requirements of the entire company for certain materials or services. The above voucher categories are assigned as attributes to each purchase proof in the EKKO head data table (field: EKKO_BSTYP). This means that the document category allows us to distinguish delivery plans from other contracts.
But how do you distinguish value contracts from volume contracts? This is where the storm table described above comes in: in the standard, the type of contract “MK” is for volume contracts and “WK” for value contracts. However, both types of documents have the same category of “K” document. While document categories are primarily used for categorization, document types are often used to customize, i.e. attributes are assigned to document types, which are then used to organize the process/control process in a system. You can also be in the EKKO table, the field name is EKKO_BSART. How do you see the difference between SAP® whether it is a normal order or a framework agreement – and, if so, what kind of agreement? Experienced SAP users® among you will of course cite the LaPi Site, which is quite true. Nevertheless, it is worth having a more detailed look. The framework agreement is a long-term sales contract between Kreditor and Debitor.
The structure agreement consists of two types: a delivery plan is a long-term framework agreement between the lender and the customer on pre-defined equipment or service obtained on pre-defined dates over a period of time.
