Vital Energi operates in a market where safety, best practice and up-to-date knowledge are paramount.
The Cabinet Office published Procurement Policy Note PPN 04/19 “Taking account of a supplier’s approach to payment in the procurement of major contracts” on 23rd July 2019. Vital Energi has responded to this by reviewing payment practices in order to ensure we have effective payment systems for the reliability of the supply chain. We complete our published payment practice reports via the gov.uk website. When we first started doing this, we identified a gap between our performance and the required standards for public sector procurement. This gap is predominantly due to favourable payment terms with two high volume low value long term suppliers based on our historic track record and reputation for being reliable payers.
