This is a join project between North East Lincolnshire Council, GDS GOV.UK Pay team, Publica Group, Oxford City Council and Allerdale Council.
Local authorities should use GDS GaaP products; GOV.UK Pay has processed >£93m, yet Local Authority adoption is slow to adopt with concerns about if GOV.UK Pay can become their sole e-payment system.
The GOV.UK Pay contract model is financially beneficial for local authorities but their feeling is that challenges & integration costs with legacy finance systems are key adoption barriers. Currently integration is done by each local authority, and we’d like to explore how Local Authorities &GOV.UK Pay can make integration easier & reusable together.
New Blue Badge service uses GOV.UK Pay; over 100 local authorities will need to get GOV.UK Pay reporting into their systems so this is relevant & timely.
6 councils & the GDS GOV.UK Pay team will collaborate to understand:
We polled Localgov Slack to gauge key system providers & identified collaborators that were using those key systems.
The current cost of the problem
Economies of scale for all 400+ UK council’s at a nominal £10,000 p.a. saving each for an e-payment provider mean that recurring annual savings could run to over £4m.
