The administrative officer or fiscal officer in your DLC assigns a cost object approver or backup approver at the fund center level. Here’s what you need to know as the traveler.

Cost object approver automatically receives expense report

The only person who can approve a travel expense report is the individual, who is authorized on the cost object(s) against which the expenses will be charged. If you have a question for the cost object approver(s), check with the administrative or fiscal officers in your DLC to identify the cost object approver(s) for your expenses. See detailed instructions in the Concur Guide for Submitters and Concur Guide for Approvers.

Delegate approver fills in as needed

Your DLC officer(s) also may assign a delegate to serve as a backup to the primary approver on a cost object. The delegate then can approve travel expense reports associated with that cost object when the primary approver is not available. If you have a question for the backup cost object approver(s), check with the administrative or fiscal officers in your DLC to identify the delegate for your expenses.
