The report only returns requisitions that have been raised by the report runner’s department, where the requisition preparer has a PO hierarchy position that is equal or below the user’s position. Previously, if a preparer moved to a new department incorrect
requisitions were being displayed relating to the previous department. The change pending flag is now included to indicate that a requisition is still pending Department Buyer Worklist approval even though the requisition status shows as approved.

Hints and tips

This report is useful for period end reviews of purchasing activities. It can be filtered to reduce report output greatly using the parameter list.
