Payment of accounts
In 2019–20, Defence met 98.7 per cent of all payment transactions by their due date. This result is ahead of the 90 per cent Government benchmark. The volume of payments through Defence Purchasing Cards and Travel Cards represented approximately 76 per cent of all payments, which continued to have a positive effect on the paid-by-due-date result (Table 4.11).
