PR Release Authorization

Hi all,

My requirement is to restrict PR Release department wise. For eg: If a person within the sales department creates a PR, then the Sales Dept. Head can only release requisitions created in his department.

Whats the standard way of implementing such an authorization?

I initially thought of creating a seperate Purchasing Group for Sales department, and thus perform authorization check on Purchasing Group Level for the tcode. But i need some clarification on what is the purpose of Purchasing Group? Is the purchasing group the people directly reponsible for negotiating with vendors? If this is the case am I right in saying that if a Purchasing Department has 4 people, then I would need 4 Purchasing Groups to differentiate the POs made by each other for reporting purposes. Or is Purchasing Group the departments within the organization?

Purchasing group is a person or group of person resonsible for negotiating. its not neccessarily a department.

you can make authorisation purchase group wise.
