The transaction types available through the Single Supplier Framework Agreement include, but are not limited to, the following: - Capture and transmission of customer and transaction data - Verification of transaction eligibility and applicant identity - Processing customer record creation, update and changes of details requests - Processing requests for duplicate / replacement documents - Processing customer payments, and management of tokens of payment and receipts - Processing refunds and reimbursements - Secure stock distribution and storage - Secure forwarding of documents to Authority premises and / or secure destruction of documents - Capture of biometric information in support of transactions, which may include but is not limited to facial photograph, signature and fingerprints - Provision of mobile and temporary static facilities for transaction processing - Provision of customer reporting / check in points - Provision of customer collection points On the basis of current usage by DVLA; future policy and legislative developments affecting DVLA functions; and anticipated take-up by the Organisations listed above, the midpoint value of this Framework Agreement over 7 years is GBP 450m or GBP 650m if the contracting authority exercises the option to extend by a maximum of 3 years. The contract authority have utilised the extension period of 3 years and a further 6 months. This is not a guaranteed figure and the final value may be greater or less than this. Given the difficulty in predicting the extent to which categories of service and volumes of transactions may develop, it is not possible to provide a reliable indicative value range. The midpoint value figure stated is therefore a current best estimate.
