Dispute resolution process

Suppliers must submit their invoices quoting a valid purchase order to ensure the invoice can be processed and available for payment. Invoices must not be submitted prior to the goods/service being delivered.
All disputes are managed via our Procure to Pay system with suppliers being notified of a dispute, via e-mail, as soon as the invoice is processed.
We aim to resolve all disputes within 10 working days to ensure our supplier can be paid within agreed terms. This is, however, dependant, in part, on timely responses from the supplier to rectify any issues.
