There are four scenarios for paying an expense.
- Paid by paper check and paper receipts are not uploaded - the two approvals are the check signatures.
- Paid by EFT and paper receipts are not uploaded - the two approvals are through the system and both approvers must e-sign at the same computer during the same logon session before the payment can be completed.
- Paid by EFT and receipts are uploaded - second approval done online from any Internet connected device using web browser. This is the most convenient for both approvers.
- Paid by paper check using MLS to process the payment as has been done in the past and is very much the same as scenario 1 above. This scenario has an expected termination as some soon to be future date for most U.S. units.
