What is a Dynamic Purchasing System?
A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is similar to a Framework Agreement, except new Suppliers can join at any time through an OJEU compliant route.
A DPS is utilised via a 2-stage approach. A brief summary of each stage is detailed below:
Suppliers can join a DPS framework arrangement at any point though its lifetime.
The application process tends to be simpler and less costly to prepare. Therefore, DPSs tend to be more attractive to SMEs to apply for.
