Effective December 14, 2001, the same person could no longer both request and approve a given draw down in IDIS.
While individual persons may have the power to both request and approve draws, this rule prevents an individual from approving a draw that he or she created. IDIS requires two people to be involved in every draw down of funds.
Currently, the IDIS Local Administrator initially defines what a person can do in IDIS, carrying out the wishes of each grantee's authorizing official ? mayor, grant holder, CEO, CFO, etc. Some users have the power to request a draw down, others have the power to approve a draw down, and others have both. Some users have full rights, while others have limited rights of various kinds.
