Indents raised by employees must be approved by their managers.
What happens if an indent request is approved?
The items requested by the employee will be issued.
What happens if an indent request is rejected?
The employee can make the necessary corrections, and then resubmit the indent request for approval.
What if the item requested is not available or not in sufficient quantity?
The indent request can still be approved. After approval, create and issue a purchase order for the pending quantity. After the items are supplied, create a goods receipt note. The pending quantity is automatically issued to the employee.
Can an approved indent request be rejected or vice versa?
Once issued, an indent request cannot be rejected. However, a rejected indent request can be approved again.
