We are delighted to announce the launch of the latest Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) within our ICT portfolio. The Internet of Things (IoT) DPS went live on Friday 6 September 2019 and is available for Scottish public sector organisations to use right away.
New and exciting technology
The DPS enables easy access to this exciting, new and evolving technology. It has a wide range of suppliers able to deliver a variety of IoT technologies and services. Further information on the DPS, including the high level scope, suppliers list and buyer’s guide can be found on our website. Some of the services and technologies available include:
- Device management
- Data management
- Analytics, and
- IoT related hardware
Over 75% of our suppliers are SMEs and some of the key benefits are:
• All suppliers have third party cyber security accreditation or equivalent
• All suppliers have accepted streamlined model terms specific to this arrangement and which can be used by buying organisations for their call-off contracts
• All suppliers pay at least the Real Living Wage to staff involved with any call-off contract
Suppliers can apply to join the DPS at any time, so we expect numbers to increase over the 24 month duration of the DPS.
