PO Approval Rights should be with Finance or Purchase


Dear Team

I would like to have your expert comments / links that PO approval rights for Direct / Indirect material should be with Finance or Purchase department.

Here is my view & request to advise further - PO process is linked with buyer then it should be with Purchase; however Finance team can be added for approver during PIR as per release strategy. But ultimately it should be with Purchase team sine they knows better negotiation & terms / condition with supplier.

Kindly advise.

Also I understand its business call PO release strategy can be finance & purchase both but would like to have common views on same.
