5 day prompt payments 2015-16

A policy for all government departments was set in 2010 with new guidelines of paying 80% of supplier invoices within a 5 day target.



We endeavour to pay all correctly rendered invoices within this target as quickly as possible. We ask that all our suppliers ensure that all invoices submitted are accurate, contain a valid purchase order number and are sent directly to the invoicing address stated on our purchase orders.
