Dispute resolution process

Disputes would generally be raised to the procurer of the goods/services or the Accounts payable team depending on the nature of the issue. They will review the disputed item(s) in order to see if it can be resolved quickly with the vendor and payment can be made. If this is not possible due to the dispute involving non-performance of contract or pricing differences for example, the dispute will be referred to senior project managers/senior Corporate managers and if required Legal department. Jacobs aim to resolve all vendor disputes as quickly as possible.
