Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)

Constructionline along with industry partners join together to provide a market leading Dynamic Purchasing System streamlining procurement for the public sector

What is a DPS?

A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is similar to an electronic framework agreement, with two exceptions, new suppliers can join at any time and it is run as a completely electronic process.

Who is it for?

Dynamic Purchasing Systems are used exclusively by public sector organisations.

The rules relating to the usage and creation of a DPS come from PCR 2015. However, in brief:

  • A DPS can be set up by contracting authorities, including central purchasing bodies.
  • A DPS should be set up for identified types of requirement, which may be divided into categories of products, works or services. Suppliers must be able to apply to join a DPS for free.

How does a DPS benefit you?

A DPS streamlines procurement for both suppliers and authorities. Suppliers don’t have to demonstrate suitability and capability every time they wish to compete for a public sector contract and the award of individual tenders can be quicker than under some other procedures.

A DPS is more flexible than a framework, particularly as suppliers may join it at any time during its period of validity, meaning that suppliers are not locked out for the duration as they are with traditional frameworks.
