eInvoicing Suppliers Purchase to Pay

A number of incidents have occurred which are causing issues with payment of eInvoicing suppliers. To avoid this happening, please note the following:

Manual Invoices for Marketplace orders

eInvoicing suppliers must invoice all Marketplace orders electronically. If departments receive a manual invoice for a Marketplace order, please contact Accounts Payable who will advise accordingly.

Similarly, if a department is contacted by a supplier chasing payment for a Marketplace order, please do not request a manual invoice, but contact Accounts Payable who will advise.

This does not apply to non-catalogue orders.

Receipt and approve orders in the correct departmental responsibility

As we approach year end it has come to light that there are a number of orders and receipts that have not been correctly associated to the relevant department. This prevents a department being unable to view their own order or associated receipt.

This is often caused where either the order was approved, or the receipt entered, using a different departmental responsibility to that of the original order. Therefore, could those of you who have an iProcurement responsibility for more than one department take care to approve and receipt the orders using the correct responsibility.

Meanwhile, if you are unable to view an order or a receipt as expected then please contact the helpdesk on who will be able to assist.
