Workflow Suspended - Access denied

I have a workflow that is being suspended randomly for certain group.

As per error message, the problem seems to be in permissions although the users of this group (Purchasing Team)have Contribute permission for this list.

By saying randomly, I mean this happens when a task is sent to the group (Purchasing Team) and they do not reply in same day.

This is really confusing me because if they complete task within short time, the workflow proceed smoothly while if they reply after say 2 days , the workflow suspend giving the below message.

I tried many steps related to permissions as advised within this forum, and even tried adding the task to action set with elevated permission but still no hope.

Any idea how to sort this out ?
