HQIP 'Time to Pay' data

In line with Government procurement policy, HQIP now publishes the turnaround time for paying it's contracted suppliers. Read the 2015/16 results here. HQIP endeavours to pay all invoices within agreed terms and understands the importance of this to our suppliers. Analysis of the last year’s activity identified that the majority of delays in payment have occurred due to:

  • Late receipt of invoices by the HQIP Finance team from suppliers or
  • When contract deliverables require discussion

To help address the late receipt, we will be working with suppliers to request that all invoices are sent promptly to finance@hqip.org.uk in the first instance, rather than to individual members of staff.
