If you need an invoice paid, please note that that different processes apply, depending on whether the supplier is a company or an individual, a partnership or a personal service company:

2. Form - Service Provider Task Brief (this includes further basic details of what the piece of work will entail)

The HR Team will then review the outcome and endorse or action accordingly via email, with further discussion taking place with the engager as required.
