Notes:

1. This information has been extracted from the Oracle Financials System 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 directorate receiving invoices from suppliers.

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

the invoice is being disputed by the directorate 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.


Chief Minister and Cabinet Directorate—invoices(Question Nos 1869 to 1877)

Mr Seselja asked the Chief Minister, the Minister for Health, the Minister for Economic Development, the Minister for Education and Training, the Attorney-General, the Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development, the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, and the Minister for Community Services, upon notice, on 20 October 2011 (redirected to the Treasurer):

Can the Minister provide a list of the Directorate’s current unpaid invoices, including the required payment date, that were received (a) between 1 and 30, (b) between 31 and 60, (c) between 61 and 90 and (d) more than 90, days ago.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

I am not prepared to release the details of suppliers as this would take considerable resources to prepare and will often have confidentiality and privacy implications.

The table below, however, provides the relevant statistics.
