Old and new suppliers encouraged to apply to join Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) 2.0
Success of DPS 1.0
Our Digital Services – Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) 1.0 is coming to an end. It has been a hugely successful agreement since it was established in October 2017. We have had over 40 call-off contracts totalling approximately £11 million with over 80% of this spend going to SMEs.
Apply now for DPS 2.0
Following on from the success of the Digital Services DPS an OJEU contract notice was published in December 2018 for DPS 2.0 Digital Technology Services. This new DPS has the same Lot structure (three Lots) as the Digital Services DPS and the process to apply is the same. The scope of the new DPS has been changed slightly for Lots 1 and 2 to incorporate the ICT services currently available from our DATS framework – which expires in May 2019 and will not be replaced.
We would like to encourage all existing DPS 1.0 suppliers to apply to join DPS 2.0 and also welcome any new suppliers to apply. DPS 2.0 will remain open to supplier applications for the whole term of the DPS. However, the earlier you apply the more contract opportunities you will have access to.
For further information on DPS 2.0 please contact Margaret Anne McKeown on 0141 242 0111.
