A field has been added to NISS applications on the ‘Product’ tab for Vendor Lead-time. This field is mandatory to complete once the item is accepted to proceed (not at the submission stage). The field, to be entered in days, is the time required for NEW VENDOR SET-UP which captures the time to prepare a purchase order and is used to establish Requested Ship Date from PO Written Date. The days entered should represent the timeframe from when the PO is issued to the vendor to the time it will be ready to ship.

For existing and direct delivery vendors only, please enter zero to disregard. Any changes for existing vendors need to be discussed with the Inventory team.

Please reach out to your Category team with any questions.
