Credit card payment policy

Facilitating supplier payment through payment card

This Resource Management Guide articulates the Government’s policy on payment cards as the preferred method to pay suppliers, for eligible payments valued below $10,000.

Applying to non-corporate Commonwealth entities, the policy facilitates timely payment to suppliers, assists with their cash flow and reduces the cost to business in supplying to the Commonwealth. 

The policy is effective from 1 July 2014.
