 EXTERNAL SERVICE MANAGEMENT

Overview: External Service Management


This blueprint describes the work MyCompany will need to execute to procure services and details how this business process is available within the application component MM External Services Management for the efficient procurement of externally performed services. The process supports the complete cycle of bid invitation, award/order placement phase, and acceptance of services, as well as the invoice verification process.

The procurement of services involves the following steps:

·         Determination and recording of requirements
·         Determination of possible sources
·         Bid invitation procedure
·         Entry of data from quotations submitted by bidders
·         Comparison of quotations
·         Award phase (order placement)
·         Monitoring of purchase orders
·         Entry of services actually performed
·         Acceptance of services performed
·         Verification of invoices for services


Key improvements to be realized from this implementation include:

·     MM External Services Management will be completely integrated into the Materials Management system.
·         The status of the requisition can be viewed at any moment in time.
·        Requisitions and Framework orders can be subject to an online approval process, thereby reducing paper work.
·       You can analyze data already available in the system in order to find suitable sources of supply for certain services.
·      The 3-way matching concept, automatically matches the Work order rates, with the service verification and invoice verification.
·         Costs can be apportioned among the multiple requisitioning departments via the account assignment.
