    High Risk Vendor PO Approval Process

      Hi All,

      We have a requirement where in we classify few vendors as High Risk Vendors at the Supplier Header Level. When PO is created, the requirement is not to block the Permanent creation of PO, but to do extra check/validation/approval by compliance/controllership team. Is there any way to route the approval for High Risk Vendors to compliance team for another round of approval ?

          Seeded Oracle workflow approval does not provide this.
          An easier out will be to generate a FYI notification to the compliance team when such a PO is approved. This way, they can intervene after-the-fact. Is that acceptable?

          The other option is to define a new Hierarchy. In the hierarchy, the compliance team is the first approver with $0.01 limit. And then subsequent approvers come into picture. The disadvantage is that the user will have to select appropriate hiearchy.
          You can consider a personalization on the Approve PO screen that forces user to select the new hierarchy if the vendor is HIGHRISK.

          Hope this helps,
