New Approved Vendor Option

This feature allows purchasing control of Vendors by Quality Assurance and allows for setting schedules for Vendor Quality Reviews. This does not prevent the user from adding the Vendor to the Purchase Order; it merely alerts them if the Vendor has not been approved, it also allows Quality Assurance to maintain records of who is approved, when an approval is going to expire and follow up. In most cases the Survey Required is sent out or filled out on-site and must be completed before the Vendor is given Approval

To setup this feature, go to AdministrationSystem EditSystem SettingsPurchasing, and add a check to the box for Vendor Approval Required.
