Purchase orders created by departments that fall under the department signature amount (currently $10,000) do not 2-step OCA approval. POs that exceed a total amount of $10,000 will require 2-step OCA approval, with the exception of a few scenarios.
Approvals (i.e. worklist tasks for approving a PO) will time out after 72 hours and will be routed to the backup of the originally intended approver. Each approval step (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, and A6) will have a corresponding backup approvers.
NOTE: The user/initiator entering the purchase order or the buyer initiating the purchase order cannot be an approver on the PO.
The approval process has defined that an email and work list notification will both be sent.
