Override quote/bid thresholds if state contract/co-op field is filled
If using quote or bid thresholds, requisitions must have 2 quotes entered on Page 2 on Requisition Maintenance screen before 1st approval is allowed, regardless if a state contract or a co-op is utilized. But this defeats the reason for utilizing a state contract or co-op! If the St. Contract No. field has a value entered, it should override the requirement for 2 quotes. This frustrates first approvers who should be able to approve state contract or co-op pricing. I also think those who enter requisitions should be the ones to overcome the quote threshold, not first approvers.

Also, if there are specific vendors (i.e., other government entities, health providers, etc.) that payments to are exempt from receiving quotes/bids. Please provide a check box on the vendor screen to exempt payments to specific vendors from the quote and/or bid threshold for requisition purchases.
