Dispute resolution process

In the event of a dispute, the supplier would contact our AP department or their lead contact in our
business. We would determine if a late payment was a result of administrative error, or dispute over the
services. Where the late payment was administrative, we would request immediate payment from the
AP team. Where there was a clear dispute over performance of the contract, we would agree a
remediation/correction plan with our supplier. In the unlikely event that no agreement is reached with
the supplier we would involve our internal and external legal consultants over any expected litigation
action.
