Multiple signatures on a single file

Is it possible to have multiple persons sign a single file? If so, how
is this done?

The particular scenario is currently this: Employees submit expense
reports for business travel using a spread sheet. Current practise is
the the employee fills out spread sheet via computer (or optionally
prints blank spread sheet template and writes by hand with a pen),
physically signs using pen and ink, physically delivers signed hardcopy
to supervisor for supervisor pen-and-ink signature prior to payment

Desired practise is to eliminate both producing hard copy and
pen-and-ink signatures, and then re-work the process using gpg
electronic signatures. Thus, employee would enter data into expense
report spread sheet, save, gpg sign, mail to supervisor, supervisor
would (presumably) open and review spread sheet, close without changing,
gpg sign, and then return to employee or forward to accounting dept.

Sounds straightforward, but I didn't spot in the various
manuals/guides/how-to's for gnupg how a second individual could add
their signature after me.
