Johnson Controls mandates suppliers to NOT accept orders or provide goods and services without an official Johnson Controls purchase order (PO) document.
As a Johnson Controls Supplier, you should not process any requests for goods or services from Johnson Controls if you are not provided a PO number or release number up front. Purchase Order numbers must also be included on all invoices, shipping documents, packages and correspondence sent to Johnson Controls.
Johnson Controls requires all supplier invoices, manual or electronic, include a purchase order number for payment. An invoice cannot be paid without the corresponding Johnson Controls provided PO number.
Johnson Controls will pay suppliers based up agreed terms that are recorded in the ERP system and communicated on the Johnson Controls purchase order. Electronic Funds Transfer is Johnson Controls required method to pay our suppliers, enabling suppliers to receive payment faster than a mailed check.
This information sheet for suppliers contains essential instructions on the process from PO to invoicing and payment, as well as relevant contact information.
