9.2 FIN - Create Delegation Request

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference for creating a delegation request.  

Audience:  Finance Staff / Approvers

Delegation is the act of giving someone authority or responsibility for oneself. A delegate/proxy is someone to represent your transactions/processes and/or approvals during an absence like vacation or medical leave.
