DPS Supporting Facilities Management
Our Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is open to all UK Public Sector Bodies and has been procured through a fully compliant process (FTS Reference 2023/S 000-005578). It is designed to enable the quick and efficient procurement of Facilities Management Services.
A DPS is a progressive procurement tool aimed at offering a flexible and accessible method for procuring goods and services. In contrast to conventional procurement strategies, a DPS enables suppliers to join or exit the system at any stage of its lifecycle, thus promoting a competitive and dynamic marketplace that adapts to the evolving requirements of the public sector.
Our DPS welcomes participation from any UK public sector body, providing a streamlined and compliant pathway to procure an extensive array of works and services. It aims to simplify the procurement procedure, minimise timeframes, and grant access to a wide selection of qualified suppliers.
Overview of Suppliers on the DPS:
Our contractors specialise in ensuring the smooth operation and maintenance of public sector buildings and infrastructure. From property maintenance and security to cleaning, waste management, and energy efficiency, these contractors handle various aspects of facility management. By partnering with Facilities Management contractors, you can optimise the performance of your buildings, reduce operational costs, and provide a safe and comfortable environment for employees and visitors.

Mini Competition Process:
ProcurePublic’s DPS competition is streamlined into a succinct two-stage procedure. Initially, suppliers from pertinent DPS categories are prompted to express their interest via a simple yes/no questionnaire, assessing their understanding and suitability for the opportunity. This step also involves confirming the accuracy of their Selection Questionnaire, submitted at the time of DPS registration. If a single supplier qualifies after filtering by category, region, and value, an automatic award might be granted under specific framework conditions.
Dependent on the level of interest, the tendering stage can be divided into two segments. Suppliers first answer selected sections of the tender for an initial evaluation, determining who progresses to the complete tender submission.

How to use this Framework?
Our simple step process allows for both Direct Selection or Mini-Competition. Further information can be found below. Please note that clients may enter into a contract for any duration that best allows for the performance of the requirement to be achieved.
With the Direct Selection method, you may select the contractor who is ranked number 1, or any other Contractor/Consultant on the following basis:
- Where you have an existing relationship with the Contractor/Consultant.
- Where the Call Off has substantial similarities to a previous project the Contractor/Consultant was involved with (under this Framework Agreement or not).
- For reasons of urgency, where it is not reasonably practical to award the Call-Off Contract by way of a Mini-Competition.
- Capability Criteria determining that only one framework appointee is capable of carrying out the Call-Off Contract.
- Where you are able to determine which Contractor/Consultant will provide the most economically advantageous offer.
- Where a Contractor/Consultant has introduced the site.
Our Mini-Competition process lets you expand beyond the framework’s original specification to meet your specific requirements. The framework partners from the relevant lot are invited to tender (where capable). This process typically takes 2-4 weeks. The capability criteria can be defined by the following:
- The contractors capability to carry out a project of the size and complexity of the proposed project.
- The contractors capability to carry out works and services in the locality of the proposed project.
- The insurances held by the contractor.
- The contractors financial stability and standing.
- The contractors health and safety record.
- The contractors capacity, taking into account the value of Works and Services already awarded to it under the Framework Agreement.
Call-off Procedure (E-Sign)
ProcurePublic has simplified the Call-off process to 4 steps allowing you access to our framework within minutes. The 4 steps include E-sign and details (or guidance) can be found below; alternatively, you can choose Mini-Competition.
- Step 1 Confidentiality Agreement
- Step 2 Specification

ProcurePublic’s Mini Competition procedure is advantageous for clients who feel that the terms laid down in the framework agreement are not specific enough for the particular Call-off. The 2006/215 Regulations do not specify how a Mini-Competition should be run, therefore ProcurePublic has set out its procedure in the document below.
ProcurePublic has also included a Mini Competition template that clients may wish to use. Please note that this document has a separate password that is obtainable through the live chat function.
