15 Day Payment Requirement

The government introduced a non-statutory requirement in June 2009 to reduce the payment period by central government departments to their suppliers from 30 to 15 days.

Every effort, consistent with proper financial procedures, is being made to ensure that all suppliers are paid within this timeframe.

The documents below show the department's performance with regard to the 15 day payment requirement since its introduction.

Prompt Payment Procedures

The department is committed to making every effort to pay its suppliers promptly. In this regard suppliers can help by ensuring that they provide correct invoices, accurate bank account details and by ensuring that their Tax Clearance status with the Irish Revenue Commissioners is up to date.

Purchase Orders

As required under the Public Service Reform Plan published in November 2011, the department publishes Purchase Orders for €20,000 or above online.
