Important information for suppliers

Implementation of no purchase order, no payment policy to all suppliers

Cheshire East Borough Council are implementing a No Purchase Order/No Pay policy (No Purchase Order/No Payment) policy from 1st January 2012.

This policy is to be introduced to enable both a more efficient process within Cheshire East and enable us to provide faster payments to suppliers (as within the agreed terms of trade).

Any invoice received from the 1st January 2012 that does not quote a valid Purchase Order number will be returned and will not be paid.

If you have received an official Purchase Order from Cheshire East you should enter the Purchase Order number onto the invoice and resubmit. If you have not received a valid Purchase Order you should contact the person that requested the goods and/or services asking them to forward a valid Purchase Order to you; the invoice should then be re-submitted and will be paid.

Please re-submit invoices to:
Cheshire East Council
PO Box 3655

More information and frequently asked questions can be found on our No Purchase Order/No Pay page.

Please note this policy does not effect payments from Schools.
