German term or phrase: entspricht der Aufforderung an den externen Lieferanten
The context is "Im Gegensatz zur Bestellanforderung, die nur einen internen Beleg ohne Verwendung außerhalb des Unternehmens darstellt, entspricht die Bestellung der Aufforderung an den externen Lieferanten, die Fremdleistung zum vorgesehenen Liefertermin zu erbringen, und besitzt somit auch Außenwirkung."
I'm confused by "entspricht der Aufforderung an den externen Lieferanten". I've translated it as "...the purchase order corresponds to the requirements for the external suppliers to perform the external activity on the designated delivery date." but I'm not sure if this is a correct interpreation. Any help much appreciated! Mac

is the request for/(directed to) an external supplier
Explanation:
Talking about the difference between a "purchase request/requirement (form)" and a "purchase order". The former is a company internal document; the latter "is the request directed to an external supplier to deliver an external service by a specified delivery date".
