Purpose of this Notice: The purpose of this notice is to inform the market operators of a Supplier Day which the NHSBSA is hosting on 30th November 2015. The Supplier Day is part of the NHSBSA’s preliminary market consultation phase and we are looking for market operators to engage with us on the day and to subsequently provide us with responses to a Request for Information on their products and services. Background: The NHSBSA is looking to engage the market to investigate solutions for handling inbound and outbound (mainly refunds) PCI compliant payments across a number of our services and, additionally, any potential new services we may take on.

The NHSBSA is seeking insight to inform our future direction for payment handling including future methods of payment.
