Purchase to pay - information for suppliers

Welcome to the purchase to pay (P2P) team, on behalf of De Montfort University (DMU) thank you for visiting our page, you are one of many suppliers contributing to the day-to-day operational requirements. See below for useful information to ensure payments are made to terms. 

The University has clear internal policies to help govern how / when different contracts requirements, based on value, are advertised and completed. Competitive process and advertising requirements are prescribed in detail within our relevant regulations, policies and procedures, please refer to the procurement page.

Purchase Orders must be requested for the purchase of all goods, works, and services before any instruction are given or commitments are made, to any supplier/contractor. Failure to do so will result in your invoices being rejected for non-compliance. Read our No Purchase Order (PO), No Payment Policy.

Paying invoices

Our goal is to pay all of our suppliers’ invoices within 30 days of receipt of an approved invoice. To assist us with paying invoices on time you should always request a DMU Purchase Order (PO) before carrying out any work for the University and this PO number must be quoted on your invoice to us. Failure to provide us with a PO number will result in your invoice being returned to you and a potential delay in payment to you.
