I agree - inquiries only.

Any good auditor would cringe at the thought of a buyer having access to
the inventory system.  As a matter of internal control, a buyer should
never have the ability to influence receipts or other inventory records,
lest they be tempted to cover up unsavory activities.  Likewise, they
should not be able to cause payments to happen through access to the A/P
system.

Hi all,

Recently our company's buyer asked me for permissions to access the /INP
menus. My knowledge of any contraindications for this are limited. However
I
know that the former MIS manager seemed to have very specific opinions
about
who should be allowed to go where in terms of potential business conflicts
of interests. Unfortunately I was only here for three or so days before she
left and we did not have time to discuss in-depth aspects of System 21
other
than a few AS/400 commands.

>From my vantage I do not see any problems but if that were the case
wouldn't
the buyer already have access? I hate to tell her "no" for no better reason
than, "There must've be a reason the former MIS mgr didn't want you in
there."

Anyway, your opinion is always appreciated.

Alan
