Selecting Approve or Reject returns the screen to the Notifications Worklist.
- If the requisition is approved, the next step is dependent on the order type:
- Amazon Business or SmartMart Requisition – The order is immediately placed with the supplier.
- Standard Requisition:
- If under $25,000 and the purchase does not require a contract, Oracle assigns a purchase order number and automatically transmits the order to the supplier. The preparer receives an FYI notification that the order has been placed.
- If $25,000 or more, or if Standard Consultant is the selected Requisition Request Type (regardless of the dollar amount), the approved requisition is routed to Procurement for processing.
- If the requisition is rejected, it is routed back to the preparer for correction. Dependent on the rejection reason, the preparer can:
- Change PTA information
- Change approvers
- Change delivery location
- Add lines
