Public Sector: Billing
To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, with reference to the Public Contract Regulations 2015, how many times the Crown Crown Commercial Service identified in the last 12 months that contracting authorities failed to include in contracts provisions that any payment due from the contracting authority to the contractor 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.

The Public Procurement Review Service have not identified any cases that do not have the standard 30-day payment terms in public sector contracts.

Through the Public Contract Regulations 2015, it is required that these payment terms are passed down the supply chain. Public sector buyers must also publish annually on their payment performance.
