Enhanced Document Access and Visibility in Mustang Market

February 3, 2017

Procurement Services understands the need for Financial Officers and Researchers to have immediate access to spend information under their purview. Effective February 3, 2017, Mustang Market Approvers now have access to view all documents for the departments and/or projects included in their approval authority, regardless of the value of the order.

Key points of this process include:

  • To access documents, you will require signing authority on the department (for operating accounts) or project (for research accounts) associated with the requisition. Signing authority is where you have approval authority on a department ID or project code in Mustang Market. To view your authority, refer to the “View Assigned Approval Folders” section on your Mustang Market profile.
  • Within your authority, you will be able to access Requisitions, Purchase Orders, and Invoices.
  • Order value does not impact access. For example, an administrator who has signing authority for up to $50k for department X will be able to see an order or invoice for $100k for department X.
  • The changes will be retroactive, meaning you will gain access to documents created prior to when this new feature was in effect.
  • Changes in signing authority will impact the visibility of existing documents. For example, if you had signing authority for department X but your authority was removed then you will no longer have access to view documents in department X except for the ones where you were the Shopper, Requisitioner, and/or Approver. If you are a new Approver for department X then you will have access to view all existing documents for department X.
