Payment Solutions

We are developing a new framework for the provision of payment solutions and associated services.

Scope

This is a potential multiple lot framework agreement for the supply and maintenance of payment solutions to facilitate the purchase of goods and services, including travel. In addition, a prepaid solution is anticipated for disbursements of funds to those who do not have access to other means. Payment solutions and any associated services will be available across all public sector organisations. The solution will provide an online management information system to enable public sector organisations to manage their purchases effectively and in real time.

Market engagement

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) has recently been published (please monitor the ‘Important Links’ section below to remain up to date on the project timescales).

If you are interested in this project please follow the instructions in the PIN below and register your interest by emailing paysol[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk

Customer engagement

We have begun consultations with a number of public sector organisations who are users of the current framework to help bring experience and knowledge to shape the new solution.

The aim of the consultations is to identify where we can learn from past experiences to improve upon current arrangements and maximise commercial benefits through a robust specification of requirements with the ability to keep up with new, innovative products and solutions.

Customer engagement will continue to take place and we would value any feedback you have to help us deliver an outstanding solution.

Important links

We will update the important links below, at each stage of the project, adding to this page as information for buyers and suppliers is released.
