									PO Invoice Holds and Notifications

In order for trust invoices to be paid by SBS all invoices must pass the 3-way match.
This means that the order, receipt and invoice must match (i.e ordered 1, receipted
1 and Invoiced 1).

A PO Invoice Hold is applied to an invoice when the 3-way match fails. The following
are examples of PO invoice holds: -

      Quantity Received
      Quantity Ordered
      Price Variance
      Maximum Shipment Amount
      Freight
      Invoices in Dispute
           o Additional lines on invoice not on order
           o Credit note required

You will be alerted to the fact you have PO Invoice Hold by a notification email from
“WY PROD Workflow Mailer [mailto:oracledba.alerts@isoftplc.com]”.
However, in order to resolve the query and release the hold you must log in to SBS
Oracle and locate the notification within the “My Notifications” section of your iProc

As a requisitioner / approver you will receive the following two types of notification

Important Note to Requisitioners / Approvers

It is important that the requisitioner deals with any notifications during a 7 day
period or the notification will escalate to the requisitioners supervisor. If the
notification escalates the supervisor should reassign (you must log on to Oracle to
reassign) the notification back to the requisitioner requesting they action
immediately. If the requisitioner is on leave the supervisor should either action the
notification or reassign to someone who can action.

Below is an explanation of why it is important that you action notifications promptly:-

                  Trust is obliged to adhere to the national “Better Payment Practice
                   Policy” which requires invoices to be paid on time.

                  “Late Payment of Commercial Debts Act” allows suppliers to
                   charge interest for late payments. If you are responsible for the
                   late payment the interest will be charged directly to your budget.

                  Failure to pay invoice on time could result in suppliers putting a
                   hold on our account meaning no further deliveries.
