Approvals (Business Units) Approvers can approve purchases against certain Index(es). They are assigned to Business Units along with the Index(es) for which they can approve. There are three dollar levels of approvals within each Business Unit. 1.$0 - $2,499 2.$2,500 - $4,999 3.$5,000 and above The Approvers are assigned to different dollar levels. It is recommended that back-ups be assigned to each dollar level, for absences as well as to approve another Approver’s requisition. 44 Note: These are not approval hierarchies with multiple approvers for a requisition. The cart is routed directly to the Approver for that dollar level. Also Note: Approvers cannot approve their own requisitions. Another Approver will need to do so.
SOLUTION: Business Units associate Indexes with the people who can approve for those Indexes. What are Business Units? 5 IFIS Chart of Accounts FinancialLink Projects Project [Name] Index Fund B Org 1 Index Fund A Index Home (Payroll) Departments People BACKGROUND 2: All employees are associated with Home (Payroll) Departments BACKGROUND 1: All Indexes (accounting information) are associated with: IFIS Chart of Accounts FinancialLink BACKGROUND 3: Currently there is not an association between people and the Indexes they are responsible for
How Does Marketplace Use Business Units to Approve Purchases?

Implications of Accounting Definitions In order to avoid duplicate Indexes across Business Units, the Index will belong to a Business Unit based on the following rules: 1.The Business Unit to define the Index at the lowest level (e.g. Index) will own it. Therefore, a higher definition may not be able to retain all its Indexes 2.The Business Unit to incorporate it first will own it
Delegation of Authority If you have been assigned the role of Department Buyer or Business Unit Approver, you have received a re-delegation of authority to release purchase orders directly to suppliers through Marketplace, thereby committing the funds of the Regents of the University of California.Marketplace This re-delegation applies to purchasing activity through the Marketplace site only.Marketplace The roles of Department Buyer and Business Unit Approver require a completion of the Delegation of Authority Form and appropriate training.
