To ensure best value provision, Newport City Council works with other local authorities via the Greater Gwent Central Supplies organisation, the Welsh Purchasing Consortium, the Consortium of Local Authorities, the Welsh Procurement Initiative, and the Wales Local Government Procurement Support Unit. 

The council’s standard payment terms are 30 days net following receipt of a complete and accurate invoice.

Data Protection 

If you contract with the council and deal with personal information, you have to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Directive (GDPR) - failure to do this could result in large fines.

Read about No PO, No Pay

The council prefers to make payment by BACS as this is more cost effective and secure.

BACS payment runs for supplier invoices are processed twice a week to encourage the use of this facility.
