At Johnson Controls, we continuously strive to make procure to pay a seamless process from point of order to payment, which drives efficiency, effectiveness and enhances our internal controls. We are focused on compliance to our Procure-to-Pay process, including, providing clear definitions and expectations, while working with our suppliers to follow our processes.
Procure to Pay (purchase to pay or P2P) is the process of obtaining and managing the goods & services needed for manufacturing a product or providing a service. It involves the transactional flow of data that is sent to our supplier partner as well as the data that surrounds the fulfilment of the actual order and payment for the product or service.
Global Payment Expectations (EFT - Electronic Funds Transfer)
Johnson Controls will pay suppliers based on 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.
Suppliers must submit EFT requests or changes to their Johnson Controls contact. In order to complete the request, the following documentation is required:
A) The supplier banking information in one of the three following formats:
Letterhead (with Remit To & Banking Information) Example: Banking Information Letterhead
Invoice (with Banking Information)
Email (no generic email accounts)
B) A valid remittance email address used to communicate payment information. Once received, this information will be validated and may warrant a verbal confirmation in addition to the steps above.
