More tenants than ever in receipt of Universal Credit

My apologies, having just read the PSN connect code of connection (I cannot find in google the "GFTS Code of Connection" referred to by the DWP), it is evident that Krystal would not be compliant for Option 3.
However, you could reach out to Memset instead. They are a Government supplier and have FTPS services available in their cloud storage space, so contact them regarding your situation and see what they say. They will probably be more up to speed on everything and whether they can help you comply. It could be that Option 3 is simply unobtainable as no-one at this level can comply with the GFTS Code of Connection.

Looking at what the Direct Payments Team has sent you Mick, I do understand what they are asking you to setup from a technical point of view.
From reading it, Option 1 is not available to you as you are not a local authority.
For Option 2, you could use Protonmail for secure email, which would require a subscription. Information here: https://protonmail.com/support/knowledge-base/how-to-use-pgp/
Option 3 is potentially easier. You need to have your own web space (and domain name) and you could get this from a provider like Krystal. They can help you with getting setup (provide a separate username/password login for DWP) and tell you the relevant ports numbers to provide to the DWP for FTPS. You then login with your username/password and access the files with a program called FileZilla and download the files to your computer.
Either way, these options all cost a subscription to get running (but rather that then battle to do it yourself and then you have support you can contact for help). I suspect that this has all been brought about by GDPR.
Hope this helps.... Read More
