Invoicing the GNWT

How do I submit an invoice to the GNWT?

Financial and Employee Shared Services (FESS) is responsible for processing and issuing payment for all invoices from vendors for goods or services provided to all GNWT departments and the NWT Housing Corporation.

What information do I need to include on my invoice?

The GNWT accepts Accounts Payable invoices generated by an accounting system or receipt book. Your invoice must include:

  1. a unique invoice or reference number;
  2. a number for a purchase order, service contract, construction contract, air charter, local contract authority, or work order;
  3. your company’s legal name and remitting address;
  4. a clear description of what goods or services you are charging for (and supporting backup, if necessary);
  5. the date the goods or services were provided;
  6. the date of the invoice; and
  7. the name of the department (or the NWT Housing Corporation) that will be responsible for the cost of the goods or service.

How do I submit my invoice?

FESS should be the first point of contact when forwarding all invoices for payment.

While all GNWT departments and the NWT Housing Corporation are responsible for the costs of goods and services they acquire, Financial and Employee Shared Services (FSS) is responsible for processing these invoices and issuing payments.
