    PO Approval Group Problem

    Sanjay Desai
      Hi Experts/Gurus,

      We have Oracle EBS 11i (11.5.10.2) .

      Preparer is created Purchase Requisition. He cannot approve the PR, can only forward the PR .

      After forwarding PR to his superior say 'A' . He (User 'A') can review and change the PR if required.

      User 'A' has not PR approval rights. PR should be forwarded to next approver say 'B' , in hierarchy even though he (User 'A') press the APPROVE button from
      Notification summary.

      At last, approver 'B' has PR approval rights . He only can approve the PR .

      At our organization, PR is created with value 0 (Zero) and buyer is input the rate at the time of PO creation .

      How I can achieve this ?

      Request to guide me.

      Thanks in advance
      Sanjay

          Hi Sanjay,

          Hoping you are not using the position hierarchy.

          One way to achieve this is by using AME and put in place a rule where approval is required from two supervisors (Exception:- when the PR is raised by a subordinate just below the top employee).

          Another way to achive this is by excluding all the accounts from the job of approver 'A' in approval group (Not suggestible as maintaining jobs of employees in this scenario will be messy)

          HTH

            Hi Prakash,

            Thank you very much for your reply.

            We are using Position Hierarchy. Also, I do not have much idea about AME .
            Can you guide me ?

            regards
            Sanjay
