More information on the above Framework can be found at the following address: Background The DVLA is an Executive Agency of The Department for Transport (DfT), based in Swansea. The Agency’s primary aims are to facilitate road safety and general law enforcement by maintaining accurate registers of drivers and vehicle keepers and to collect Vehicle Excise Duty (VED). A DD payment option was introduced from 1st October 2014 which enables End Users to currently pay the full annual VED amount in one annual instalment, pay for a 6-month licensing period in one instalment or opt to spread the costs evenly over the term of a 12-month licensing period. All options result in an automatic VED renewal, subject to all business requirements being met, unless the End User opts out of the DD scheme. • Currently, over 1.4 million mandates are created per month, this is split between circa new (40%) and renewed (60%) mandates. • On average, Direct Debit payments total approximately £230m a month. Market Engagement Event DVLA are organising an in-person Supplier Day in Swansea Vale on 17th September 2024, to gather market information for the next Direct Debit Contract.
