(2) This invoice relates to the recovery of salaries through a Secondment Agreement between ACT Health Directorate and the Independent Parliamentary Expenses Authority.
(3) Cancer Institute NSW sends quarterly invoices to ACT Health for the coding and data entry for the ACT Cancer Registry. They are almost always paid by the due date, however this particular invoice was held up due to staff changes and staff leave.
(4) The description ‘other creditor’ was entered erroneously at source, and subsequently captured incorrectly on the notifiable invoices list.
(5) This invoice was originally received at the time Canberra Health Services were undertaking the transition to the new payment system which meant that the original hard copy invoice was required to be resubmitted electronically. The delay was subsequently compounded by the resubmitted invoice not having an ABN which meant it could not be paid. There was an administrative error that meant that the invoice was allocated to incorrect delegates for signature and had to be redirected.
The Contractor was advised of all stages of the process. The Contractor understood that the transition was responsible for the delay and was ultimately content with the outcome.
