What is a supplier item identifier and why is it important?

A supplier item identifier refers to an item’s unique identification number as provided by the supplier. It could be the supplier’s item #, part #, manufacture’s #, a catalog #, etc. When your purchase order gets issued electronically to the supplier, Workday cannot attach the quote - only the purchase order itself is issued to the suppler, so including the item identifier becomes very important to ensure you receive the exact item you require.
