There are two categories of requests—Catalog and Non-Catalog. Catalog Requests include both searchable Internal Catalogs and Punchout Catalogs. Your organization has granted you catalog access based on regional availability. Non-Catalog Requests pertain to Free Text line items for vendor products or services that are not available in the catalogs.
A single request may contain line items from multiple vendors. In this case, multiple POs will be created from a single request. Any combination of goods and services, as well as Catalog and Non-Catalog line items can also share the same Request Name and Request Number.
