In the example above, the expense report is a high risk behavior because of the upgrades that were detected on the hotel receipt. However, if you would like to approve the report, you can do so by selecting a “Reason for Risk Rejection”. The following are the three reasons for risk rejection:


Risk Rejection



Exception approved by management




The risk is correct, but for this particular instance, an exception is allowed and is being approved by management.



Risk is correct, but in-policy



The risk is correct, however, the expense is within company’s policy (This means that the audit configuration probably requires change)



False Positive

The risk was incorrectly identified by AppZen as "High Risk", due to AppZen incorrectly identifying a violation or not following your company’s Audit Configuration.



3. Once the Risk Rejection has been chosen, a comment can be entered and the “Auditor Action” can be saved.





  1. Once saved, the report will be approved and next steps will proceed in the Concur workflow.
