Dispute resolution process

John Graham Construction Limited is committed to fair treatment of all our suppliers and actively seeks to resolve disputes in a timely manner. Dispute resolution mechanisms are discussed and agreed with suppliers at contract negotiation stage.

The initial point of contact for any invoice disputes will be the Accounts Payable team, who if unable to resolve, will escalate the matter to the relevant contract / commercial team and subsequently to Senior Management, should this be required. Where it is not possible to reach a satisfactory agreement, other methods of dispute resolution, such as mediation, adjudication, litigation etc. may be used.
