information to the Department, the response below reflects the total number of invoices paid during the period July to December 2009.
Number of invoices
Average value of invoices
Paid by due date
The figures presented above do not take into account when invoices are received by the Department. A significant proportion of the invoices are received well after the date on the invoice due to the practice of "bundling"invoices for reason of small amounts or monthly remittance by suppliers.
Payment of invoices may also be delayed due to the need to verify services received or works completed and/or to resolve disputed amounts or incorrectly rendered tax invoices.
Approximately 21% of overdue invoices relate to internal transactions with other ACT Government agencies.
Government—payment of invoices
(Question No 590)
Mr Seselja asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 11 February 2010:
How many invoices were received by each department or agency in the Minister's portfolio in (a) July, (b) August, (c) September, (d) October, (e) November and
(f) December 2009, what was the average value of these invoices and how many
of these invoices were fully paid by their due date.
Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
� Information associated with the number of invoices received by the Department each month is not available. The response is therefore based on the invoices paid by the Department.
� In line with how Shared Services provided the required information to the Department, the below response reflects the total number of invoices paid during the period July to December 2009, rather than each month individually.
