Dispute resolution process

O’Halloran and O’Brien seek to avoid disputes by communicating directly with the supplier or subcontractor. Suppliers - the first point of call for all invoice related questions is the purchase ledger team who will be able to advise on the status of the invoice. If the invoice has not been approved and is being held in query, the purchase ledger team will acknowledge this with the supplier and direct them to the correct person to resolve the query.
Subcontractors – all queries must first be raised with the commercial staff reasonable for engaging the work. Approved applications will be passed to the payment team for processing.
If the dispute cannot be resolved, it is then escalated to a senior team member at Director level.
