Minor Building Works Dynamic Purchasing System

LPP established a need for a compliant route to access suppliers of lower value minor building works' services. A Dynamic Purchasing System enables smaller enterprises to bid for public sector work, and suppliers can apply to join the DPS throughout its life, unlike a standard framework.

Benefits of the contract

All suppliers who have been awarded on to the DPS have already passed the first stage, the pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ). This included supplier information, exclusion & selection criteria, economic & financial standing and technical & professional ability.

Benefits for contracting authorities include: 

  • Shortened procurement times as advertisement in OJEU and PQQ stage have already been undertaken - no further advertisement is necessary.
  •  Increased competition as local providers can apply to get on to the DPS at any time during its period of validity.
  • Participating organisations can develop their own specification, based on pre-developed templates, to meet their own requirements and formulate the award criteria more precisely.
  • Award of individual tenders can be quicker than under some other procedures - the minimum time limit for return of tenders is 10 days. 

For full information on how the DPS works, please read the User Guide.
