NatWest is the first bank to be named as a supplier on the CCS new DPS for open banking services. This DPS will be accessible by all public sector entities in the UK. This includes central government, local authorities, NHS, police, education providers, devolved administrations and charities.

It means that buyers will be able to access Payit by NatWest open banking solutions. In addition, they can access Confirmation of Payee (CoP) API to support fraud prevention.

NatWest is already well integrated within the public sector. For example, it is the largest supplier of commercial cards under CCS’ Payment Solutions 2 framework. It is also one of the two house banks on the government banking contract.

DPS gives the public sector access to a pool of pre-qualified suppliers

Mike Elliff, CEO at Payit by NatWest said: “After becoming the first country in the world to accept tax payments via open banking, this DPS will give the public sector access to a pool of pre-qualified suppliers. NatWest is delighted to be the first UK bank appointed to the DPS. Open banking is a key part of the UK financial ecosystem. Seeing it integrated into the public sector is encouraging.

“With the continued adoption of open banking in the UK we are uniquely positioned to support the public sector with our award-winning open banking solutions.

“Individuals and businesses rely on NatWest to pay and get paid. That is why as a group we’re entrusted with 1 in 4 UK transactions. Our proven and secure infrastructure enables billions of payments every day. We combine the scale and resilience of a bank with the speed and innovation of a fintech to bring new payment services to our customers quickly and safely.”
