Freedom of Information Request

Invoice Payment Performance 18/19 and 19/20

Received: 18 June 2020

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following from your finance systems and Accounts Payable department:

Invoice payment performance data for financial years 18/19 and 19/20:

1. How many invoices were paid late (actual number rather than %) and what is the total value of invoices paid late?
2. xquestion deletedx
3. How many claims have you processed for late payment of invoices? How many claims were successful and how many were rejected (and for what reason)? (Volumes and values of claims)
4. Do you have a documented process for late payment claims? If so, is this published and can it be shared? In the absence of a process, where should late payment claims be submitted?

I am aware that many councils may publish a summary of their payment performance as required by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. I am seeking the transaction detail that sits behind this.

This information should be readily available from your finance systems but if there are any difficulties in producing or sending the data please advise and I will provide any assistance necessary. I have provided a table that may help to present this information back.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone (xx Personal data redacted xx) and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss the request, my details are outlined below.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.
