3. Return the document to the preparer so that they can make the necessary adjustments and then submit for approval again.

Steps to Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create an amendment on a requisition and decrease the line amount to 0.001 (funded value of 0).
2. Submit the amendment for approval.
3. As the approver, use the Edit Requisition action. Make no funding changes and certify the amendment.

Note - If the same action is done without using the Edit Requisition action, the amendment processes successfully.
