The Procurement Hub

Delivery Notes

All delivery notes relating to goods and services must be passed to the Procurement Hub without delay since no invoice can be paid without the associated Delivery Note.  Should you not receive a delivery note please email without delay to let us know that you have received your order or to notify us when a service is complete.

Supplier Invoices

Supplier Invoices for payment must be passed to the Procurement Hub Team by 16:00pm on Thursday, 20th July 2017 to ensure they can be processed and forwarded to the Payments Office by their deadline date of 21st July 2017 (with BACS payment to suppliers running on 25th July).  If the 20th July deadline is not met, Suppliers will not be paid until the new financial year and the expenditure may have to come from next year’s budget.

As you can appreciate this is the busiest time of the year and I would be grateful if you could submit your requests as quickly as possible rather than wait for the deadline date to arrive.   Please note all provisions and prepayments are the responsibility of the individual department but should you have any queries please feel free to contact me.
