2) Assigning additional invoice reviewers in Ariba
Requisitioners will have the ability to add another Ariba user as an approver or watcher for invoices over $5000. Approvers must then take action (approve) on the invoice to generate payment.
For invoices under $5000, requisitioners will be added as a watcher. Watchers are notified via email, at which point the email can be forwarded to a colleague for review. After three days, invoices under $5,000 will auto-release, unless placed on hold by the requisitioner in BUworks. Requisitioners will be able to view invoices in the system, and place them on hold if there is a discrepancy or other concern. Please see this guide for instructions on how to place an invoice on hold.
