Once you’ve added a supplier to the external party section of a contract, the next step is to add the supplier contact. If your supplier contact does not exist in the system, complete the steps below to add them.
How to Add New Supplier Contacts to a Contract
Scroll down to the External Party section.
Click on the Supplier Contact field.
Select the Add New button.
Complete the Add Contact form.
Select the Send Invitation box.
Click on the Done button when finished.
The new contact will now display in the Supplier Contact field.
- Use the Show Lookup link if you know that the contact you need to add is already in the system or if you are prompted that they already exist in the system during the process of trying to add them as a contact.
- Can’t locate the supplier contact but it exists in the supplier profile? If the supplier contact exists in the supplier profile, but you cannot locate that contact’s name in the external party section of a contract, confirm that you are using the correct supplier profile. There may be similarly named suppliers in the system. Be sure the supplier profile you use is approved or normalized.
