Supplier Payments 

We do our best to ensure that suppliers are paid on time. You can help us avoid delays in making payment by following these guidelines:

  • All invoices must include a valid purchase order number
  • Invoices should clearly detail the goods or services provided and match the purchase order and what was delivered - any inconsistencies between what was delivered, the purchase order and the invoice could result in delayed payment.

If an invoice is received without a purchase order number, we will be unable to process this, and the invoice will be returned to you. You will then need to contact the requestor to get a purchase order and then re-issue the invoice.

We prefer to receive invoices electronically. Please send your invoices to our accounts team at:

Progressive Procurement Policy 

We have implemented the government’s Progressive Procurement Policy. All suppliers are asked to indicate if they meet the definition of a Māori business. If you want to check or update your status as a Māori business, please contact Procurement Team on 03 470 9475.
