There are six different types of supplier statuses in CalUsource. Generally, almost all suppliers in the system (except for Rejected) can be used for Sourcing events. However, the system is more stringent on the types of suppliers that can be used for Contracts.
The table below outlines the different supplier statuses, with definitions and their availability for Contracts and Sourcing.
|Status||Definition||Available for Contracts||Available for Sourcing|
|Approved||Supplier has been approved for use|
|Normalized||Supplier has been approved for use in contracts and has an associated JAGGER supplier record in uBuy|
|Identified||Supplier has been identified but not invited to complete a profile.|
|Invited||Supplier has been identified but not invited to complete a profile. They have not completed the registration process.|
|Registered||Supplier has completed the registration process.|
|Rejected||Supplier has been rejected and is not available for use. Please check the comments in the profile for guidance.|
