Dispute resolution process
We aim to resolve disputes or queries regarding invoices and payments as quickly as possible. Any queries regarding the expected payment date of an invoice should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
For contractual disputes, not necessarily related to payment date enquiries, you should follow the procedure contractually agreed and, if none, then please contact the individual(s) who ordered the goods or services you have provided.
When an invoice dispute is received, it should if possible be resolved at point of contact with the Accounts Payable team. If this is not possible, the query will be escalated to the business contact and a relevant senior finance contact if necessary. When resolved, the invoice will be available for payment on the next standard payment run.
