The sourcing rule and approved supplier list automatically created as global upon BPA approval. In 11.5.10 a patch is
now available to allow users to create local sourcing rules through the "Generate Sourcing Rules and ASLs from
Blanket Agreements" concurrent program. After applying Patch 4923689, customers would have to add the
concurrent program "Generate Sourcing Rules and ASLs from Blanket Agreements" to a Request Group that they
deem suitable for users to be able to access it.
