Minor Building Works Dynamic Purchasing System

The Minor Building Works Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) has now expired, with no option to extend. All mini-competitions that were going through this DPS must have been concluded by the expiry date of the 3rd January 2020. Please note, awards cannot be made now the DPS has expired. If you have any questions, please contact a member of the Estates, Facilities & Professional Services team. LPP will be procuring a replacement DPS shortly”.

Benefits of the contract

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.

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.
