Government payment drives questioned as BIS distances itself from Carillion's 120-day payment terms

Source: Construction News 

Two flagship government payment initiatives were under scrutiny this week as Carillion pushed out payment terms to 120 days under the umbrella of prime minister David Cameron’s scheme aimed at supporting SMEs.Government has distanced itself from Carillion’s decision to extend payment terms as part of its interpretation of ‘supply chain finance’ - which sees invoices passed to the banks in a bid to reach suppliers sooner - by saying it “does not encourage the use of supply chain finance to extend payment terms”. The government also came under fire for the increasing use of project bank accounts, which the chief executive of one major contractor labelled as government intervention “possibly of the worst kind”.
