II.1.4) Short description

This is an Invitation to Tender for DWP's Disaster Emergency Payments Service (DEPS).

The contract is due to commence on 1 December 2022.

The potential solution must be able to support DWP with a payment infrastructure to address a catastrophic event which prevents DWP from preparing and issuing payments files. The Department could be vulnerable to external risk such as cyber security threats which could result in the estate environment not being able to access the data and potentially unable to process and create the payment files. The potential solution which will be operating outside of DWP estate is crucial for the Department's risk mitigation strategy.

DWP makes circa. 2.5m payments per day and pays over £3.7bn per week.

Clarification questions may be submitted from 04/08/2022 up to 18/08/2022. For transparency, clarification questions and responses will be shared with all interested suppliers, all sensitive information will be removed prior to wider publication.

Please Note: The Authority reserves the right to withdraw the tender at any time and not to award a contract. Any costs incurred in the preparation and submitting of a bid and any subsequent activity connected to this tender exercise will be met by the Supplier, not the Authority.
