Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Building, Engineering & Maintenance Services

DCUK FM have been accepted onto the LPP DPS for Building, Engineering & Maintenance which is maintained by Constructionline. This allows any NHS and Public Sector organisation, registered to use DPS, to research our company, our services and issue tenders to us via their own e-tendering system.

NHS trusts and other public sector organisations require the ability to flexibly deliver building and engineering maintenance services in the way they see fit for their site(s). The DPS can be utilised by any public sector organisation. This includes NHS trusts (including PFI healthcare buildings and facilities), NHS collaborative procurement organisations, Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS England, NHS Property Services Ltd and other approved public sector organisations in England.

Benefits of the contract

The DPS was chosen as the most suitable commercial vehicle following feedback from LPP trusts and other potential users of the system.

Establishing a DPS with multiple providers will help to create an environment which encourages fair competition, allowing potential providers to join at any time and choose whether to compete for all or any of the other work categories under the DPS for which they are considered suitable.

  • Shortened procurement time as advertised in OJEU and PQQ stage has already been undertaken.
  • Contracting authorities can undertake a competition with a group of pre-qualified tenderers with all qualification documentation held centrally by LPP.
  • Encourages competition as it is easier for local providers to get on to the DPS and join at any time during its period of validity.
  • Awards of individual tenders can be quicker than under some other procedures. The minimum time limit for return of tenders is 10 days.
  • Suppliers may join the DPS at any time during its validity period so they are not locked out.

The DPS for Building & Engineering Maintenance Services is expected to run for a period of 4 years, from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2021.
