June 30, 2020 by No Comments | Category buyers, cyber security, digital technology products and services, Dynamic Purchasing System, ICT, Procurement news, Scottish Procurement, SMEs, suppliers

The Digital Technology Services DPS has been operating for over a year and it’s been a busy but successful year.

There are approximately 270 suppliers on the DPS and SMEs make up almost 80% of that number and impressively SMEs have secured over 70% of the call-off contract spend.

A recent survey found that over 81% of suppliers realised the DPS experience is better than other procurement routes.

The DPS is split into three lots:

  • Digital projects
  • Digital resources
  • Cyber resilience

Key benefits

  • access to a wide range of digital technology suppliers
  • easy access for suppliers, encouraging competition and SME participation
  • suppliers can join the DPS at any time, provided they meet the selection criteria
  • completely electronic process
  • streamlined procurement process
