Treasurer's Instruction 11 Account Payment Performance

Pursuant to Treasurers Instruction 11 Payment of Creditors’ Accounts public authorities are required to forward to the Department of Treasury and Finance a report detailing account payment performance by volume and value for the financial year just ended, within the time bands:

  • within 30 days;
  • 30 to 60 days and
  • greater than 60 days.

This information is certified by the Department's Chief Finance Officer and is published below.

In 2016-17 SA Government agencies paid 2.5 million invoices valued at $16.3 billion. The total value of all accounts being paid outside of the Government’s 30 day terms Government was $602.9 million ($707.3 million in 2015-16).

The invoice data captured relates to payments both external to and within the Government. This is the total paid for the full year, it does not represent an outstanding amount at any particular point in time.

The Government’s expectation in relation to payment of accounts remains unchanged. It is expected that all undisputed invoices be paid within 30 days and continuing improvement continues to be a focus for all public authorities.
