RFI — Digital Payment Gateways — PA Turnpike (on Behalf of Other Agencies)

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC), acting on behalf of 17 other named toll agencies, has issued and is administering a Request for Information to give firms, teams or other entities with the necessary experience the opportunity to provide feedback, information and materials for deliberative decision-making regarding trends and options for digital payment gateway solutions. According to the RFI, “A digital payment gateway is the mechanism that securely reads and transfers payment information from a customer to a merchant’s bank account. Its job is to capture the data, ensure funds are available, confirm customer consent exists and pay a merchant. A payment gateway solution will integrate with a toll agency’s back-office system and have Application Programming Interfaces(API) that are published and available to secure public and private partners. A digital payment gateway is omnichannel and can service multiple payment service providers, accepts multiple currencies, avoids duplicative payments, and uses financial services standards to post and settle payments. It is desired that the digital payment gateway accepts multiple payment types including card and non-card payments.” Questions may be submitted through the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s vendor portal (click on “Latest RFxs” and select number 6100009413) until 2:00 PM Eastern on October 31, 2022. Electronic responses may be submitted no later than 2:00 PM Eastern, on November 29, 2022. Responding to the RFI is not a prerequisite to participation in any future procurement process.
