Supported Living DPS Market Engagement

A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is an electronic system that can be established to purchase goods and services which are:

  • commonly used by your Organisation, and
  • readily available on the market

Using a DPS provides a simple, straightforward form of access to contracts for suppliers. 

When applied appropriately, it is a cost effective method that can limit the need for complex tender processes and benefit both supplier and tendering organisation.  The approach lends itself well to self-limiting market places where new activity is to be encouraged.

As part of Hull's Adult Social Care commissioning of quality provider services an interactive session was recently held with those providers.

Here you can watch a presentation from Hull's Adult Social Care Commissioning Manager for Supported Living, Chris Oakley.
