Purchase requests are by default sent to the budget holder (approver of purchase invoices) of the ofi-number for approval.

However, with the web application FB Purchase Requests Mandates, budget holders have the possibility to set up the approval workflow to their liking. They can grant mandates for the approval of purchase requests:

  • To one or more persons
  • From or up to a specific amount
  • During a specific period of time (especially during holidays)

In case of absence of the budget holder the Procurement department is also able to set mandates or vacation rules in the system so that purchase requests submitted for approval can be routed to and approved by someone else. In this case, please contact Natacha Naumann or Hilda Emmerich.
