Only the owner of a PO can modify a PO. If you raised [entered the data] a PO for someone else then that person is the owner of the PO.
What happens when a PO I raised for someone else is declined.
If a PO has been declined then both the person who created the PO [who entered the data] and the owner will be notified by email. The owner of the PO (the crew member who has their name on the PO) can choose to edit the PO and either delete the PO or make any changes and resubmit the PO again for approval.
What happens when a PO is approved?
Both the person who created the PO (entered the data) and the PO owner will be notified by email. The email will advise you that you can now send the PO to the supplier. Both the person who entered the data and the PO owner can send the PO to the supplier.
It is advisable that it is agreed when creating the PO who is going to send the PO to the supplier, otherwise the recipient of the PO may get notified multiple times. If the PO has already been sent already you will be asked “Would you like to resend to the supplier” – at this stage you can decide to resend to the supplier.
