Invoicing the University


Please be advised that with effect from 1st April 2016 the University of Derby and its associated businesses will be operating a new approach with its suppliers in how it deals with invoices received for goods and services supplied.

This change is in pursuit of both process and payment efficiency for the benefit of your company or organisation as part of our valued supplier base.


University staff authorised to purchase goods and services will be made aware of the requirement to provide you with a valid Purchase Order before supply.
