You can define business justification reason codes to classify and track certain types of purchases. For example, you can create codes to signify that a purchase was made for a new hire, a scheduled replacement, equipment failure, a marketing event, or other defined reason. Because business justification codes appear on purchase requisitions, anyone reviewing a purchase requisition can immediately see the reason for a purchase.

  1. Click Procurement and sourcing > Setup > Policies > Business justifications.

  2. In the Business justifications form, click the New button or press CTRL+N to add a new business justification reason code.

  3. In the Business justification field, enter the business justification reason code that you want requesters to use when they enter a purchase request. The business justification reason code appears in a drop-down list on the purchase requisition header.

  4. In the Description field, enter the description that you want to appear in the Reason field on the purchase requisition header.

  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 to add additional business justification codes.
