To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what proportion of contracts issued by his Department and contractors include provisions to impose, as between parties to the subcontract, that any payment due from the contractor to a subcontractor under the contract is to be made no later than the end of a period of 30 days from the date on which the relevant invoice is regarded as valid and undisputed, as required by the Public Contract Regulations 2015.

DFID’s standard contract terms and conditions require DFID contractors to pay undisputed sums due to their sub-contractors within 30 days from the receipt of a valid invoice and to ensure all sub-contracts contain the same provision.
