Oracle Services Procurement – Job Category Association

Oracle Services Procurement – Job-Category association – In order to use the “Contractor Request” functionality of iProcurement, you need to setup the job-category association to associate a HR Job code to a Purchasing Category. This setup enables the requester to select the job code in the contractor request and in turn the mapped purchasing category defaults in the category field of the requisition lines.

Switch to Purchasing Superuser or similar responsibility.

Navigate to Setup -> Purchasing -> Job Category Association.

Click on the “Create” button and it will open the “Create Job and Category Association” page.

Select the Job code. The values in the LOV come from job code setup done in HR.

Select the Category. Only the active Purchasing Categories appear here. See how to setup Purchasing Categories here .

Enter the “Job Description”.

Job details field is optional.

Save the record.

Now the job code mapped to the purchasing category can be selected in the “Job” field of the “Contractor Request” page. See how to create a contractor request here.
