Business Process & Workflow Documentation

Business Processes

Business process maps are maintained via the Vanderbilt Confluence app.  Documentation is reviewed and updated periodically by the Process & Systems Optimization team and functional leadership. 

To discuss any business process further, please contact the related functional partner:



Workflow documentation is included within the business process maps.

Transaction workflow varies based on the transaction type and initiator. Transactions initiated within the department are typically reviewed by the following roles within the business unit:

  • Time and absence transactions are reviewed by the employee's Line Manager;
  • Purchasing and expense transactions (including One Card) are reviewed by the Financial Unit Manager(s) of the related financial unit(s) and, if greater than $10,000, by the Business Unit/Entity Approver(s); and
  • Human Resources transactions are reviewed by the Business Unit/Entity Approver of the related business unit.
