Connecting with NDIA systems

The NDIA is providing access to Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to allow connections between registered providers and some NDIA systems and data.

APIs are available for:

  • registered providers
  • software developers working with registered providers.

APIs should only be used for the purpose of automating transactions providers would usually complete in the myplace Provider Portal.

We are working to release more APIs and let other businesses access NDIA APIs.

The NDIA Digital Partnership Office (DPO) will manage and improve the APIs.

How to start using our API services

Register for development access

  1. Download and complete:
    1. NDIA Digital Providers Questionnaire (DOCX 97KB)
    2. NDIA Digital Providers Terms and Conditions (PDF 30KB)

  2. Get a current company extract for your company. You can purchase this on the ASIC website . The date on the Current Company Extract should be within four weeks of the date you post these documents to NDIA.
    1. The current company extract gives us the registered Director/s and Secretaries. We use this to confirm the signing authorities on the terms and conditions.
    2. If the terms and conditions are being signed under a Power of Attorney, or alternative signing authority, please send a copy of the supporting signing evidence.
  3. Email the completed Questionnaire, Signed Terms and Conditions and Current Company Extract to [email protected].
  4. Post the signed hard copy of the Terms and Conditions to:

  5. You can then view the API specifications in the vendor developer portal.

Access to NDIA Production APIs

To gain access to our APIs in the production environment, you will need to:

  1. Finish developing the software you want to publish.
  2. Email the API support team to let them know you are ready to test. They will send you a test plan test data and test results template. 
  3. Return your completed test results for the API support team to review.
  4. Once successful, we will let you know and start the process to grant production access, including whitelisting and PRODA client ID details.
  5. Complete PRODA production authentication, and you will have production access.

If you have any questions about the APIs, email [email protected].
