December 2009, what was the average value of these invoices and how many of these invoices were fully paid by their due date.
Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
Information on the number of invoices received by the ACT Land and Planning Authority each month is not available. The response is therefore based on the invoices paid by ACTPLA within the time period, July to December 2009 (based on information provided by Shared Services).
Number of invoices paid
% of invoices paid
Average value of invoices paid
See notes below
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.
The parameter of 35 days has been used instead of 30 days to allow for the normal time lag that occurs before ACTPLA receives invoices from suppliers.
2. Invoices can remain unpaid past the due date for a variety of valid reasons:
- further documentation on the invoice is required or the invoice is being disputed with the vendor;
- the invoice received is not a valid tax invoice;
- the invoice details are incorrect resulting in the invoice not being received by the correct agency or area within the agency;
- the invoice is issued by the vendor well after the date specified on the invoice.
