The objective of this document is to standardize the Business processes, the Business transactions and the Information entities of the Quotation used by the industries in the supply chain.  

The first draft of the Business Requirements Specification (BRS) was developed with TBG14 and presented prior to the TBG1-TBG6 joint meeting in February 2009. After the UN/CEFACT Forum meeting in Rome in April 2009, the BRS was further developed with requirements contributed from TBG1 members such as GS1, AFNET (ex EDIFRANCE), US Department of Defense, and others. Also, requirements were implemented from Construction (TBG 6). The structure was reworked according to the Buy-Ship-Pay process model developed by TBG 14 

The purpose of this document, which is based on the structure of the UN/CEFACT Business Requirements Specification (BRS) document reference CEFACT/ICG/005, is to define globally consistent Quotation processes for worldwide supply chains, using the UN/CEFACT Modeling Methodology (UMM) approach and Unified Modeling Language to describe and detail the business processes and transactions involved.
