Authorisation purchase request mandate

This page contains information about the approvals workflow for the FB Purchase Requests web application.

Purchase requests (OTAs) are presented to the budget holder (person authorised to approve purchase invoices) for the stated internal bank account numbers for approval as standards. 

However, budget holders can amend and customise the approval workflow in the FB Purchase Request Mandates web application; they can:

  • Grant mandates for the approval of purchase requests to one or more persons
  • Grant mandates from or up to a specific amount

Holiday rules should also be set up in this application.

In the absence of the budget holder, the Procurement Department can set up mandates and holiday rules. Contact Natacha Naumann or Hilda Emmerich.
