No PO No Pay policy – All invoices are required to quote a valid purchase order number generated from the Justice Plumbing software system.
Justice Plumbing has an active No Purchase Order (PO) No Pay stance with all suppliers and contractors providing goods, services, which came into effect from 1st February 2021. From this date all invoices have been required to quote a valid PO number generated from the Justice Plumbing software system.
In addition to this guidance, the Accounting Team has published further information to help you. Please refer to the No PO No Pay FAQs section at the end of this communication. You can also contact the directly via [email protected].
Why have we implemented this?
A No PO No Pay stance allows Justice Plumbing to better manage what is spent and when, while also ensuring Justice Plumbing can consistently maintain a prompt approach to paying for goods, services and works which have been ordered in accordance with approved processes.
This is already standard practice elsewhere and contributes to greater clarity on services and costs for both Justice Plumbing and suppliers.
What you need to do
If you are a supplier to Justice Plumbing, please ensure all invoices submitted for payment to [email protected] with a valid PO number. This PO number should be received prior to shipment of goods or delivery of services or works.
POs are generated only by the Justice Plumbing software system. Invoices received with a valid PO number will then be paid in line with agreed contract terms (usually 30 days from approval).
Any invoices without an official PO number will be returned to you and may delay payment.
We appreciate it may take time in some areas to adapt to this new approach, however once implemented consistently, the move will make a real difference to our ability to manage payment processes more efficiently.
