Open APIs for building your own Deferred Payment Agreement (DPA) Calculator
We have developed 2 kinds of DPA calculator APIs under Open License, which are free for reuse. 2 APIs perform different parts of the calculation, and the other collects feedback.
Councils and organisations who use these on their sites will still need to develop a user interface for the calculator.
To use any of the calculator APIs, you must also agree to implement the feedback API (API 3).
We’ve split the calculator software into 2 APIs to give you more flexibility in how you integrate the tool into your care information service.
Open API 1 – Central Government rules and parameters for DPA eligibility
Open API 2 – This 'packaged' API takes eligibility input, performs eligibility calculation and returns instant results.
Open API 3 – Warehouse input to collect anonymised statistics for Open reporting purposes
For examples of how these APIs could be used as calculator forms, please visit the DPA Calculator microsite.
