Default Purchase Order Process Flow

Question for anyone out there with ERP systems: do you have Finance in your workflows to approve expenditures prior to PO creation? Do you route requisitions or PO's to Finance to ensure there is budget availability to purchase? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. We have experienced this with some large manufacturing companies and wanted to find out the prevalence of this practice. Thanks!

Yes, we do have workflow approval for all po's to a Chief Accounting Employee (CAE) to budget check before dispatch. We operate on Oracle 9.0 currently and had been on PeopleSoft 8.8 previously since 2004.

Default Budget Check Prior to PO Creation

Purchase Requisitions when created can be validated for budgets check through a work flow prior to requisitions approval. Once the requisition is approved, there is no need for PO check against budget. Oracle can handle this provided budgets are loaded in to the ERP system.
