Pre-Tender Market Engagement for the Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) Digital Architecture Requirements

The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP), is looking to engage with suppliers and pensions industry organisations who may be interested and suitably qualified to provide to meet its proposed central digital architecture requirements for a Pension Finder Service and Governance Register. The PDP is issuing this market engagement notice via the government portal Contracts Finder to raise awareness in the wider market of a potential future procurement activity to procure a product or service. This notice intends to facilitate an electronic market engagement exercise, so the PDP can examine the readiness, capacity and capability of interested commercial providers in the market prior to undertaking any future formal competitive procurement exercise. This is not a call for competition, but a desire to carry out early market engagement to support development of our commercial procurement strategy, and our proposed central digital architecture requirements. We therefore wish to invite interested organisations to complete a Request for Information (RFI) Questionnaire in order to gather views and information concerning certain aspects of the proposed digital architecture requirements prior to commencement of any future formal competitive tendering process. The approach for duration of future contract(s), any opportunities for splitting the digital architecture requirements into separate procurement lots, and route to market for the future procurement is currently undecided. We reserve the right to use a pre-existing compliant digital services framework agreement (Crown Commercial Service or other public sector digital framework agreements) should that be identified to be the most suitable option during this process. Further details, including the background to the Pensions Dashboards Programme, is set out in the Request for Information (RFI) Supporting Document which is provided as an attachment with this notice.
