1859679 - Over-Delivery Tolerance on Purchase Order Differ from Purchasing Contract


You have set the over-delivery tolerance on a contract, but the over-delivery tolerance carried over to a purchase order originating from a project is different from the defined percentage.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Open the affected document.
  4. Verify the over-delivery tolerance.
  5. Go to the Sourcing and Contracting work center.
  6. Go to the Contracts view.
  7. Open the associated contract.
  8. Verify the over-delivery tolerance is different from that of the Purchase Order.


The purchase request of the associated purchase order has a reference to a project purchase request.


The system is working as designed. If the purchase request of the affected purchase order has a reference to a project purchase request, the over-delivery tolerances are copied from the purchase request, and not from the contract.
