How to Use the System: For Organizational Approver

Step by Step - Prioritizing requests as the Organizational Approver

The project request process requires projects to be approved and prioritized by the unit's Organizational Approver before it is assigned and completed by Architects & Engineers. When a project request is created, CPMS routes the request for required approvals- if approved, it will then be routed to Architects & Engineers for assignment.
