Signature Authorization Form Important Notes

The University is in the final stages of Implementing the On-Line Requisition/Workflow functionality in the PS Financials.

Engineering has been selected to be the first College to utilize this new functionality and other Colleges will follow in the near future.

The purpose of this new functionality is to streamline our procurement process by entering requisitions in PeopleSoft and use electronic routings and approvals to move these transactions through the system. This new process will enable us to pre-encumber funds as requisitions are approved and will provide the community with more accurate/timely budgetary reporting.

The Signature Authorization form has been revised in order to support this new workflow process. The Final Review section pertains to On-Line Requisitions only and will not affect current processing of the form. Colleges will make a determination to use this additional approval level when you roll out this process.

We appreciate your patience as we move forward with this new functionality and will continue to provide periodic updates. If you have additional questions please contact the PS Financials lab at 874-7048.
