Why your organisation should use a dynamic purchasing system

dynamic purchasing system

We have spoken previously about the benefits of using a dynamic purchasing system. Not only is a DPS a flexible alternative to a framework agreement, it allows buying organisations to choose from a competitive range of suppliers.

If you would like to know why your organisation should use a dynamic purchasing system, find out more below.


Cost efficiency

As a DPS imposes no limit on the number of suppliers which can be added to it, buyers often benefit from having a competitive number of suppliers bid for the tender. This helps the buying organisation to achieve low prices, resulting in overall savings.


Work with a variety of suppliers

In recent years, the Government has introduced initiatives encouraging public sector organisations to work with SME businesses. If your buying organisation wants to work with both small and large organisations, then a DPS can help you to do this.

Due to DPS being an ‘open system’ format, new market players can join at any time. In most cases the entry requirements are lower when buyers are using a DPS, and this will encourage SME businesses to compete for work.


Access innovation

In a climate where technology is constantly evolving it is important that your organisation can work with businesses that provide products and services that are built with the latest innovation in mind.

If your organisation is using a framework, it may be restrictive. For example, the best suppliers at the start of a framework may have fallen behind in terms of innovation four years on.

By using a DPS your organisation will have the option of working with new suppliers in all markets.
