GOV.UK Pay as a viable alternative e-payment provider

This discovery aimed to explore how local authorities can make integration with GOV.UK Pay easier and reusable for everyone in local government.

The GOV.UK Pay contract model is financially beneficial for local authorities however, legacy finance systems and their relatively high integration costs  are key adoption barriers. Integration is currently undertaken separately by each local council with no common reusable solution available on the market.
