Compliance Items and Blocked/Not Blocked Pay Requests

This entry is part 7 of 24 in the series Setup Guide - Compliance

Whether a compliance item will block approval of Pay Requests is determined by several factors.

One factor is the Pay Control option on the Details tab of the Pay Request, its Commitment, and the corresponding Vendor document.


Approval of a Pay Request will be blocked if:

  • Pay Control for the Pay Request, Commitment, or Vendor is set to Block, and, therefore, the Compliance item is always out of compliance.

–OR–

  • Pay Control for the Pay Request, Commitment, and Vendor are all set to Auto and the Compliance item is out of compliance.

A warning message will appear, but approval will be allowed, if Pay Control for the Pay Request Commitment, or Vendor is set to Warn.
