As of Sept 26, individuals with any SpeedType fiscal role except Officer are eligible to be approvers in CU Marketplace. What's changed: The Marketplace now recognizes Fiscal Principals and Fiscal Managers in addition to Fiscal Staff approvers. What hasn't changed: Individuals who want approval capability in the Marketplace still need to request that authorization via the Financial Systems Access Request form ... in addition to making sure they have an appropriate SpeedType fiscal role.
