Dispute resolution process
Any disputes or inconsistencies will initially be addressed by the project surveyor (for subcontractor payments) or a purchase ledger assistant (for supplier payments). The majority of these matters are resolved such that the payment can be made within pre-agreed terms.
If a resolution cannot be found through this process, an escalation process exists through line management and ultimately Directors to resolve and mediate where possible.
Should this process not achieve a resolution then, in very rare circumstances, contractual dispute resolution processes are adopted.
