Dispute resolution process

The fair treatment of all suppliers and subsequent payment of invoices within agreed timescales is important to Engie.

Supplier Relationship Management, within the Procure to Pay process, ensures that we work closely with our suppliers to resolve all known disputes and maintain relationships thus preventing financial issues for them and impact on business operations for ourselves.

Invoices will be placed in dispute for a variety of reasons: non-compliance, price/value mismatches, issues with the goods/services or being invoiced without the goods having been received. In all cases, Engie seeks to resolve disputes as quickly as possible.

As soon as the dispute is identified, the reason for dispute is notified to the supplier and tracked through to resolution. Suppliers are kept up to date regarding progress as well as being issued with regular statements advising of the status of all invoices awaiting payment.
