Notes:

1. The information has been extracted by Shared Services based on 35 days from the invoice date. Due to how the 'due date' field is used in the system, this methodology provides the most accurate payment data possible. A parameter of 35 days has been used instead of 30 days to allow for the normal time lag that occurs before a department receives invoices from suppliers.

2. Invoices can remain unpaid past the due date for a variety of valid reasons, including:

- the invoice is being disputed by the agency with the vendor or further documentation is required;

- the invoice received is an invalid tax invoice;

- the invoice details are incorrect resulting in the invoice not being received by the correct agency or area within the agency; or

- the invoice is issued by the vendor well after the date specified on the invoice.
