Service Offering 

The prime focus of this Preferred Supplier Panel is the recovery of overdue rates and sundry debtor accounts on a referral basis. 

Members undertake their own internal processes and levels of collection activity prior to referral to an external agency. 

Services available for delivery under this Contract include, but are not restricted to: 

  • Collection of outstanding accounts (rates and sundry)
  • Undertaking of legal recovery action
  • Debtor location
  • Assisting with the improvement and design of Member debt recovery processes
  • Implementation of proactive recovery strategies and processes to assist in the reduction of payment default for Members 

The Contract requires that Preferred Suppliers collect monies that Members deem necessary to be pursued by a third party.

The Supplier’s recovery action may range from a formal letter of demand to full legal action.
