# PO Approval Delegation

Hi guys

can anyone tell me, if the final approver delegates approval authority to the approver below him,does that approver (approver below) need to have the same limit(monetary) of approval as the final approver

Hi,
Is he going to delegates all the PO for Approval..? Ideally it should be in same limit if you want all the PO to be approved by the person whom it has been delegated.. If you give the person a different limit then he will be able approve those POs which are within his limits.. else it will go to his supervisor..

I assume you are using employe-Supervisor Hierarchy here...

Yes we are using the supervisor hirerarchy

see in my scenario the final approver can approve over \$20000 and he delegated to the person with a limit of equal to/less than \$20000,...can this person be able to approve above \$20000

because when this person approves it returns with the status of pre-approval

Hi,
Final approver can approve over \$20,000
Delegated person can approve with a limit <= \$20,000,...

Question : Can this person be able to approve above \$20000?????

Ans : Nope.. As his limit is <= \$20,000 , any PO within his limit he only can approve even though PO is delegated to him which is higher han \$20,000

To confirm the same, test it this way...

Step1:
=====
Assign a job through which the delegated person can approve PO higher than \$20,000, now try to approve a PO which is delaged to him whose value is higher than \$20,000... He will be able to approve this PO.

Step2:
=====
Assign a job through which the delegated person can approve PO <= \$20,000, now try to approve a PO which is delaged to him whose value is higher than \$20,000... He will not be able to approve this PO. Now the PO will be pending with his Supervisor for approval.. You can check the same in PO action history

Hope this will help
