Gateway is a completely transparent system. As long as a user has a role above Shopper, users are able to query the system and see any other department's funding information.
This makes split funding easier, one user can kick-off an order and enter in all of the departmental information that will be involved with the order from the beginning.
The order will then route to all departments that will be involved with the order for their various electronic approvals. All Department Buyers and all Account Approvers WILL need to sign off before the order will complete workflow.
