On 11.5.x on non RAC system in Production:
When attempting to approve new Purchase Orders  (or Requisitions) that have been submitted for approval by the supervisor the following error occurs:

PO or Requisition approval errors at procedure PO_REQAPPROVAL_ACTION.VERIFY_AUTHORITY with Doc Mgr Error 3.

It has also been observed that Requisitions when approved by a responsibility tied to a different data group than the PO Document Approval Manager can cause failure at   PO_APPROVAL_LIST_WF1S.BUILD_DEFAULT_APPROVAL_LIST

NOTE: If the user submitting the PO or Requisition has approval authority the failure can occur at the Open Document State node instead, which is procedure PO_REQAPPROVAL_ACTION.OPEN_DOC_STATE

Implemented a new data group
