Local Digital’s DPA project is developing a DPA Calculator application programming interface (API), which anyone will be free to integrate into their website or software.
The tool will comprise clear guidance from central government department policy advisers on the eligibility criteria for entering into a DPA and the formula for how the costs are calculated, so that councils and suppliers can confidently develop web tools for their customers. It will ask users a series of questions to obtain the necessary information to give an indication of:
- whether a person is likely to be eligible to enter a DPA;
- how long their equity in their property would allow them to defer costs; and
- what the total costs would be
