Ecosystem technical working group

The Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) has established a new working group, the ecosystem technical working group. The group is made up of subject matter experts in the use and development of application programming interfaces (APIs), from the organisations that will connect to the central digital architecture, plus representatives from the PDP. 

The purpose of this group is to help refine the technical standards that data providers and dashboard providers will use to connect to the pensions dashboards ecosystem. It is a knowledge-exchange forum, which can provide advice and support towards the development of technical standards. 

We anticipate that the group will meet every two weeks initially, moving to monthly until publication of the technical standards.  

Discussion will include but is not limited to: 

  • API specifications  
  • the use of UMA for the authorisation protocol and delegation functionality  
  • format of the Pensions Identifier (PeI) and descriptor   

If you’d like to express your interest in participating, please contact us at: eventspdp@maps.org.uk
