The APA Quality Programme

The Quality Programme is a voluntary accreditation from the APA that recognises your team’s commitment to quality, continuous improvement and best practice in Accounts Payable.

It helps you review and improve your AP processes, people development and strategic management. Successful completion of the programme confirms all of these areas are fit for purpose and aspire to best practice.

The programme is suitable for AP functions of all organisations and sizes. Once accredited your organisation will become part of the APA Best Practice Network.
