E1: 43: Approval Processing in Procurement with Multiple Approvers (Case Study) (Doc ID 2081249.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2021

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement and Subcontract Management - Version XE and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

Approval Processing can be setup with multiple monetary approvers on an Approval Route.  The “From Amount” (data item ALIM) designates the amount that the order total must exceed to require a monetary approval.

If the originator is the only approver on the route or the highest approver on the route, the order is automatically approved. If the originator is also an approver and the amount exceeds the first threshold on the approval route, then the order goes for approval to the approver who is above the originator irrespective of the originator's position in the route or the amount of the order.
