Standard Terms and ConditionsLast updated: 27 September 2012 14:28 UK
Where we enter into a formal contract, the terms and conditions are stated within the tender documents and/or negotiated with the successful tenderer.
These terms of payment will, in general, be based on our standard terms for purchase orders, which includes that payment will be despatched 30 days from receipt of an acceptable invoice for goods or services performed.
Our standard terms for purchase orders can be found in the document below, and these will apply, and will prevail over any terms presented by tenderers/contractors unless the Council expressly agrees otherwise.
We would like to recommend that, if you are a supplier currently receiving payment by cheque that you provide us with your bank details to enable us to make a faster electronic payment. To do this, please provide your company name, address, bank name, account name, sort code and account number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may be interested to know that we have a corporate purchasing card programme and any supplier that is capable of receiving payment by credit card (without passing on charges) may request this payment method at the time an order is placed with them.
