1.1. Click on the arrow in the Stage field to expand the status.
1.2. View the Stage information to determine which IT Subject Matter Experts are involved with your request.

If a request has been completed, you can check the status in the Request History section.
1. To view the status of a completed request, click on Request History.
2. The Approval field will indicate whether the request was Approved or Rejected.
3. Click on the REQ number to view the IT Authorization Number (approved requests) or the rejection reason (rejected requests).
3.1. For approved requests, the IT Authorization number will be at the top of the page.
Be sure to scroll down to view if there are any comments, especially as you may have been asked to make the purchase with a purchase requisition as opposed to a p-card.
3.2. For rejected request, scroll down to view the comments made by IT as to why it was rejected.
In this example, although the VPAT was accessible, the purchase was deemed too expensive.
