Civil Service Commission: Payments

Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what arrangements there are for the Civil Service Commission to transfer payments to (a) suppliers and (b) its staff in circumstances where the payment has not been made on the due date. (220884)

I have been asked to reply.

I understand the hon. Member is referring to the Office of the Civil Service Commissioners. The Cabinet Office administers payments in respect of the Office’s suppliers and staff.

The Cabinet Office’s procedures are designed to support its policy to pay undisputed invoices within the terms of the contract; salaries on the due date; and valid staff expenses within five working days.
