Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)
All communication around procurement must be electronic by October 2018, making now the time to invest in a Delta eSourcing Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).
Tender documents that are placed on a DPS are made freely available electronically from the date of the advert.
This makes public procurement more transparent as these procurement documents must remain available electronically throughout the lifecycle of the Dynamic Purchasing System.
Find out more about our Dynamic Purchasing System module below.
What is a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)?
Delta eSourcing’s DPS is completely electronic. The module allows buyers to procure goods, works or services commonly available on the market quickly and efficiently from a refreshable pool of suppliers.
DPS is an efficient and wholly electronic framework procedure, enabling buyers to get more value for money from their suppliers.
What are the benefits of DPS?
The other benefits of DPS for a procurement team include:
- Procure goods, works or services commonly available on the market
- Manage a range of competitive exercises, including opportunity notice creation, request for quotes (RFQ), mini-competitions, open DPS, Questionnaire and end-to-end DPS exercises
- Benefit from a refreshable pool of suppliers, with companies which meet the selection criteria being able to join at any point
- Select from a large pool of suppliers: there is no limit to the number of suppliers which can access the DPS
- Automated Evaluation – let Delta eSourcing do all the work
- Award tenders more quickly than under other procedures: the minimum timescale for return of tenders is 10 days
- Improve efficiency as there is no requirement to advertise in OJEU for each mini-competition and suppliers only need to demonstrate suitability once.
Gain value for money with DPS
Refreshing your pool of suppliers is important, as it ensures that your organisation is consistently benefiting from the eProcurement process, gaining value for money and ensuring that your suppliers always remain competitive.
When you choose to use a DPS, new suppliers can join at any time, which means that new players in the market are not locked out of your supplier list – keeping everybody happy!
This streamlines public sector procurement as suppliers do not need to repeat suitability and capability steps every time that they want to tender for a public sector contract. All in all, this speeds up the process as it makes tendering much simpler!
