In order to ensure that small businesses and individuals will have access to cash flows, the GNWT will be changing payment terms on all invoices to DUE NOW. This means that invoices that were previously scheduled to be paid in 30 days, will be processed immediately. It should be noted though, that this not mean payment will be immediate. While the GNWT has worked hard to maintain and enhance our capacity to deliver these services there will still be some processing time required. We are committed to ensuring payments are processed as quickly as possible.
For further information an FAQ is available here.
Financial and Employee Shared Services (FESS) is responsible for processing and issuing payment for all invoices from suppliers for goods or services provided to all GNWT departments and the NWT Housing Corporation.
In this section:
FESS should be the first point of contact when forwarding all invoices for payment.
For faster processing, email your invoice to email@example.com.
You can also submit your invoice by mail or in person to a Regional Financial and Employee Shared Service Centre. All envelopes should be addressed to Financial and Employee Shared Services.
To avoid delays and allows us to process your invoice as quickly as possible, your invoice should include all of the information listed below:
- The name of the department or agency that the invoice is for
- Your company’s legal name and mailing address
- Invoice number
- Invoice date
- Purchase order number(s)
- A clear description of the goods and/or services you are charging for, including any supporting backup
- The date the goods and/or services were provided
Payments are processed within 20 or 30 days1 from the date your invoice is received (not the invoice date) to process payment. To ensure that there are no delays, please make sure that your invoice includes all of the required information.
FOR FASTER SERVICE:
- Emailing your invoices to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than sending them by mail allows us to start processing your payment sooner.
- Invoices paid by cheque are delivered by mail and will require additional time for delivery. You can reduce the amount of time it takes to receive your payment by signing up for direct deposit.
FOR FASTER SERVICE:
- Make sure you provide your invoice number so we can reference your file more quickly.
