French term or phrase: acte effectif
This is in relation to issuing orders
Un numéro de commande ne peut être émis que si une demande d'achat a été établie et approuvée.
La commande correspondante sera établie et envoyée au fournisseur qui ne pourra engager la prestation avant de l'avoir reçue.
Seul XXX est autorisé à passer une commande auprès des fournisseurs.
Sauf dérogation écrite, XXX ne traitera pas les demandes d'achat présentées après l'acte effectif dont l'initiateur gardera seul la responsabilité à l'égard du fournisseur."
