Welcome to the GDSAP tool
The GDSAP tool is free-to-use software developed by BRE on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The software allows:
Notice of forthcoming changes to the GDSAP service:
DECC wishes to announce that effective 5pm today, 16 August 2013 Green Deal Advisors are no longer able to use this tool (GDSAP) to lodge domestic Green Deal Advice Reports for England & Wales and Scotland. This does not affect the Green Deal Improvement Package lodgement function, which will continue to operate.
GDSAP was developed by BRE on behalf of DECC to ensure software was available for Advisors during the early stages of the Green Deal. The intention has been to withdraw the service once a sufficient number of commercial software products became available. With six commercial tools now in full operation, DECC believes the time is right for the GDSAP occupancy assessment service to be closed.
Remaining GDSAP users have now had a two month period to transition to alternative software. A list of approved software can be found here. Assessor Organisations may wish to speak to their certification bodies for advice.
Although the function for lodging Green Deal Advice Reports is to be withdrawn, the “Green Deal Improvement Package” (GDIP) functionality will remain in place. The GDIP function allows Green Deal Providers and Advisors to revisit lodged GDARs and make changes to the package of recommended measures without the need to carry out a full new occupancy assessment.
The functionality of GDSAP to undertake Occupancy Assessments for training and demonstration purposes (only) will still be available in the foreseeable future.
If you have any queries about this announcement, please contact your certification body in the first instance.
