School Business Management Conference - Save the Date!
Thursday 27 & Friday 28 June 2019
Portfolio Billing – Centralised Payment
The council is moving to centralised bill payment across our corporate energy and water contracts, recharging participants, including schools, via cost code. This should help reduce administrative demands on schools, further facilitate bill validation through the Council’s energy management software and reduce charges for late payments.
We will however need a read per month up until April 2019 to ‘fine tune’ the estimates of annual consumption. Reads sent in by the 2nd of each month are included in the invoicing. We may need photos of meters if reality differs to the supplier’s ideas.
Each school will be sent a login for a web portal where you can upload reads and download spreadsheet invoices. An example of the web portal user guide is attached for perusal.
You’ll also receive what utility suppliers call a ‘debt position’. It doesn’t mean to say you’re in debt, often it means they can’t match payments to invoices.
Each school will be contacted about this individually. If you have any questions or would like to speak to someone about this please use the firstname.lastname@example.org email.
