Smart Approve >>> RocketShip Approvals for Purchase Orders.

Approval for purchase orders typically involves a process where a designated individual or group reviews and authorises requests to procure goods or services. Here's a general outline of how it typically works:

  1. Request Initiation: Someone within the organisation identifies the need for a product or service or business case and initiates a Project initiation documentation or purchase request. This could be through a requisition form, an online procurement system, or an email.

  1. Document Review: The purchase request is then reviewed to ensure it aligns with the organisation's budget, policies, and requirements. This may involve checking if the requested item meets the organisation's needs, comparing prices, and ensuring funds are available. This can take time within all busineses.

  1. Approval Workflow: Depending on the organisation's structure, the purchase request may need approval from one or multiple levels of authority. For example, small purchases might only need approval from a department manager, while the larger purchases may require approval from department heads, finance, or even the executive team.

  1. Authorisation / Approval: Once the purchase request is approved at all necessary levels, it's authorised, and a purchase order number is created. The purchase order details the specific goods or services to be purchased, quantities, prices, delivery dates, and other relevant terms and conditions.

  1. Issuance: The authorised purchase order is then sent to the vendor or supplier, officially initiating the procurement process.

  1. Tracking and Documentation: Throughout the procurement process, it's essential to track the status of purchase orders to ensure timely delivery and proper budget management. Documentation of approvals and purchase orders is also important for audit purposes and record-keeping.

  1. Receipt and Payment: Once the goods or services are received, the purchase order is typically matched with the corresponding invoice. After verification, payment is made to the vendor or supplier.

This process ensures that purchases are made in accordance with organisational policies, budgets, and objectives, while also providing transparency and accountability in the procurement process.
