Public contracts regulations 2015

Public Contracts Legislation – Payments

Under the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (Regulation 113) Chorley Council is required to publish performance data at the end of each financial year starting with 2015/16.

The data demonstrates the Council’s performance in paying invoices within 30 days to suppliers over the previous 12 months.

The statistics include:

  1. Percentage of invoices paid within 30 days.
  2. The amount of interest owed to suppliers due to late payment.

Additionally, it is a requirement to publish the total amount of interest that the Council was liable to pay i.e. whether or not paid, whether statutory or otherwise, due to breach of the Regulations. This figure must be published annually in relation to the previous 12 month period at the end of March 2017.

In order to comply with the legislation, the table below shows the performance of Chorley Council. In accordance with the requirements, the amount of interest shown below is that which the Council could have been liable to pay, but was not actually paid to suppliers as no supplier requested payment of interest.
