Service Metrics

To ensure proper data quality is properly managed, we will continue analysis of the Goods-Receipt-Invoice-Receipt (GRIR) balances through a review of the outstanding Purchase Orders and Line Items by year. The metric represents the extent to which all involved parties (departments, Accounts Payable, Purchasing) are resolving issues with purchase order receiving, payment, and recording accounting entries. Note: All service metrics are measured on a monthly basis.
