Running ECS SRM 5.0.

On the following is stated about the role SAP_EC_BBP_SECRETARY.

"They can confirm goods receipts or service entry sheets for the employees in their department, centrally. After which, they can enter the invoice for the purchase orders that belong to it."

What does "in their department" mean here?

I have tested this and my user with the secretary role is able to confirm goods ordered by a user that does not belong to the same org unit as him, so I am curious what sap mean with "department" in the documentation

    Please confirm that the Org Unit of the user in the Organizational Plan (PPOMA_BBP) is under that User Id position.. Is there exists any relation in the Org Plan ?

      Due to that, I find it a bit odd that my user with secretary role can do GR of the other users shopping cart, given the statement in
