Access to Surrogate bidder group must be approved by Ariba. Therefore, no buyer can have surrogate bidding. In most of the cases it is with Ariba support team or someone from customer who is not the buyer.

Surrogate Bidding functionality can be controlled through group access called "Surrogate Bidder" group. Do not assign this group to any of the internal users in this way no buyers will be able to place the bid through Surrogate bidding functionality.
Hi Christoph ,
Ariba Customer support team can ensure you that and the second option is that you restrict the Surrogate Bid right .
