Paying suppliers

Payments to our suppliers are made by BACS.

Under section 113 (7) of The Public Contract Regulations 2015 there is a requirement for contracting authorities to publish the percentage of invoices paid in accordance with this section for the preceding financial year together with the total amount of interest actually paid and the value of interest that we were potentially liable to pay to suppliers.
