Who is my Administrator?

Approval process

  • Activity code Requisitioner - 60% of any allotted time. Self approval (traveller) will not be permitted and so approval will divert directly to level 2.
  • Back-up approver determined by 'division' - Next 20% of any allotted time.
  • Travel.helpdesk@manchester.ac.uk - Final 20%. The helpdesk will follow a process to obtain email approval from an appropriate manager.

My Approver is absent

  • The booking will flow automatically to the other 2 levels so if an approver is absent short term this should not cause a problem.
  • If you are aware that the absence may be long term please do contact the finance helpdesk as this will cause problems elsewhere in Oracle Financials.
