Purchasing Services changes e-mail process for requisition approvals
Effective Monday, Feb. 25, Purchasing Services will change the e-mail process for requisition approvals.
In the old process, a systematic e-mail was generated to everyone who needed to approve a completed requisition. This process was confusing for people at the second-, third- and potentially fourth-level approval, as they were sent an e-mail telling them to approve the document before prior approval levels had been completed.
The new process will send systematic e-mails to the person at each level in the order of approvals required. The first person to approve the requisition will get an e-mail, and once approved the system will then send an approval-needed notice to the person at the next level, and so on until all of the necessary approvals have been secured.
Questions and concerns can be directed to Karen Harthorn, director of purchasing services, (651) 962-6353.
