Dispute resolution process

Suppliers may raise disputes by emailing the purchase ledger team who seeks to resolve independently. Where necessary, disputes are escalated to the purchase ledger manager and then to a financial controller. If a dispute is still not resolved, the company will enter into a process of self managed arbitration, involving the senior management of both principals to try and reach a mutually acceptable agreement.
