Crown Commercial Service, as the Authority, intends to put in place an agreement
for the provision of Payment Solutions for use by Central Government and UK
public sector bodies.
The lotting structure of this framework will be determined as a result of
stakeholder and market engagement.
The proposed requirement will provide for Procurement Card solutions which will
enable the purchase of common goods and services across the UK, Europe and
worldwide. In addition, Payment Solutions will provide for a prepaid solution for
the disbursement of funds to those who may not have access to other means. The
solution will look to expand the list of services eg. Project Bank Accounts, if the
merits can be demonstrated for the Public Sector.
Further information is included in the Additional Information section VI.3
