    INPEX’s preferred ordering method for transacting with suppliers is Purchase Order

    Purchase Order

    ALL requirements for goods and services will be communicated to suppliers via a purchase order on the Ariba Network, referencing a pre-negotiated agreement or standard terms and conditions of purchase. Ad-hoc requirements must be supported by a quote and deliverable-based activity must be supported by an agreed statement of work.

    INPEX may also issue a purchase order for unplanned or recurring services based on a provisional amount, however will only pay suppliers based on the verification of actuals, once an electronic invoice has been submitted via the Ariba Network.

    INPEX also supports various supplier integration methods for ordering and invoicing and encourages the hosting of catalogues on the Ariba Network.
