It provides a supplier user front end to enable them to manage purchase orders and generate and transmit, outbound to CP&F, messages and transactions relating to Advance Shipping Notices, receipts and invoices. These messages and transactions route back by the service into the MoD’s CP&F system. It also provides an integration pass-through to facilitate exchange of messages between CP&F and suppliers. Following an appropriate level of matching within CP&F the supplier is then paid via BACS. ** PREVIEW NOTICE, please check Find a Tender for full details. **
