What is a Dynamic Purchasing System?
A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a system used by a service team within the Council to run tenders related to their area. We have a number of DPS’s in the Council covering a range of areas from taxi and minibus transportation, economy and infrastructure projects to learning and development.
Anyone can sign up to a DPS, so be sure to register to In-Tend, sign up to a DPS, and apply to the tenders.
