Minor Works and Maintenance Dynamic Purchasing System

Following the closure of the Minor Works DPS the Estates, Facilities & Professional Services Team have taken the opportunity to merge Minor Works and Building Engineering Management agreements which were managed on Constructionline into a new Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the supply, install and maintenance of plant and other minor works. The DPS is now live and is managed internally by LPP.

Start: 07-07-20
End: 06-07-25
Contract type: DPS
Accessible to: All Public Sector
Authority: London Procurement Partnership (GSTT)
OJEU Award Ref:
Initial period (years): 5.00
Extensions remaining: 5.00
NHS LPP Ref: LPP/2020/011
NHS LPP contact: Ash Fraser / 020 3007 0600 ext. 3053 /

LPP established a need for a compliant route to access suppliers of Minor Works and Maintenance 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 Selection Questionnaire (SQ) which is based on the PAS91. 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 SQ 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.

Below is the list of categories available and contracting authorities will have a detailed specification of their own individual requirements.
