Kier Construction Prompt Payment Code action plans

Kier Construction is a signatory to the Prompt Payment Code (PPC) and is a strong advocate of fair treatment for all supply chain partners.

We are working hard to simplify internal processes and approvals, to minimise time to pay our supply chain partners.

We are also working with our supply chain partners to inform and upskill them, where required, and supporting them to submit right first-time invoicing to avoid payment delays.

As part of its commitment to further improve payment practices, Kier Construction is delivering action plans, with particular focus on:

  1. Hiring of plant and machinery – through the simplification of the order and invoicing processes.
  2. Subcontractors applications and payment certification – by establishing best practice and focussing on the time taken to process applications.
  3. Kier Early Payment Scheme – only introducing to new major contracts, as appropriate.  
  4. Contract payment terms – to be reviewed and updated on new contracts in accordance with our commitment to the PPC.
