This database-oriented archiving should be distinguished from document archiving in optical archiving systems using SAP ArchiveLink. When ArchiveLink is used and the corresponding settings are applied in archiveLink customizing and in customizing messages in purchases, framework agreements that have been issued as messages can be archived visually. You can view visually archived conventions from the VIEW of SAP documents via Environment Display Original. A contract is a longer-term agreement with a supplier (one of the two forms of “framework contract” in the SAP system) for the supply of equipment or service for a specified period of time. The purchasing literature may use different terms for this concept, including “framework order”, “framework contract”, “system contract” and “period contract”. A framework contract can consist of the following two types: your system administrator archives framework purchase agreements at specified time intervals. Archived documents are deleted from the database. A delivery plan is a long-term framework contract between the supplier and the customer for predefined material or service that is provided on predefined dates within a time frame. A delivery plan can be established in two ways: for value contracts, the quantity of items is often secondary, because the total value of the contract matters. For example, a facility management contract of €1,000,000 can be concluded with a supplier. This includes the three points of building cleaning, possible repairs and disposal.
In this case, individual sizes can be assigned much less concretely, and an overall construction makes more sense. Another example would be office equipment (pens, post-it notepads) that is too “singular” at the room level to be defined in a framework agreement. The agreements laid the foundation for long-term structured procurement. But concretely, what is the individual purchase on the basis of an agreement? Here too, we talk about “call-offs”. These are specific specific contracts, with reference to the framework agreement. How you can identify these searches through data analysis, in which tables they are recorded, and whether the entries of goods and invoices are relevant or relevant in this context, this is something for the next blog post in the series. A contract is a long-term framework contract between a supplier and a customer for a predefined hardware or service over a specified period of time. There are two types of contracts – framework contracts are an important issue that we must constantly address in our data analytics for procurement. Unlike individual contracts, which are often ad hoc, framework contracts are constructions aimed at a longer-term business relationship. I hope that you have appreciated the entry into the issue of framework agreements and that we will soon meet here for the second part `Framework agreements – documentation on demand`. .
