I have to submit some paperwork for the approval of an activity. However, I have already got approval, the paperwork is only necessary to submit the specifics (the date, people involved, and other details which have already been approved) for sign-off.
What is the word (or expression, but preferably a single-word) to describe this kind of action?
I already have approval, so submitting this paperwork is a ____ act.
I already have approval, so the paperwork is just ____.
It's not "futile" as it's still necessary, I'm not "going through the motions" as I really mean it and my heart is in it, so how can I describe this paperwork?
