Procurement policy note 03/16: publication of payment performance statistics

This note explains how public sector contracting authorities are to start publishing annual payment performance data after March 2016.



This procurement policy note (PPN) restates the annual publication requirements under regulation 113(7) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. After March 2016, and then at the end of each financial year, contracting authorities are required to publish data demonstrating compliance with the obligation to pay invoices within 30 days to first tier suppliers/prime contractors over the previous 12 months.

This PPN supports the Public Contracts Regulations: statutory guidance for contracting authorities on paying undisputed invoices in 30 days down the supply chain.
