The services comprises over 100 staff engaged in the invoice payment process, who process some 1.5 million invoice transactions per annum with a value in excess of £3 billion, for approximately 30,000 active suppliers.

Around 90% of the invoices are processed electronically and there is an initiative to increase this to 95%. The majority of invoices processed are matched to a purchase order. National No Purchase Order No Payment policy has been introduced in NHS Wales on 1st June 2018. There is an agreed list of exceptions and for these invoices, they are authorised and processed directly through Oracle without the need to raise a purchase order.

The service has to comply with a statutory Government Target of paying 95% of invoices to its suppliers within 30 days.
