As an approver, can I fully delegate this authority so that someone else can review and approve all claims sent to my attention?

Approval authority can be delegated within UWinsite Finance. Establishing an expense approval rule provides a delegate with the authority to approve expense reports on the account holder’s behalf. The responsibility for the approvals still resides with the account holder. As such, delegates need to be carefully chosen to ensure they are aware of the University’s expense-related policies and understand the implications of their approval decisions. 



This option allows you to delegate your authority for approval temporarily. For example: when you are on vacation.
