What are Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS)?

A DPS is a procurement tool for works, services and goods. Dynamic purchasing systems are explained in more detail on our DPS page.

How can contractors apply to be included on the CPC Minor Works DPS?

The DPS is being managed through the Sourcing Cloud tendering platform. Interested contractors need to create an account (if you don’t already have one) and then use the ‘Opportunity Search’ tool on the dashboard to navigate to the DPS using project reference ‘CA7638’. Then download and complete the ‘Minor Works DPS ITP’ document, upload it to the portal and click ‘submit’. All applications will be evaluated within 14 calendar days.

How is the DPS operation funded?

A Marketing Premium of 0.75% is required for all business placed under this DPS by CPC Educational Member Institutions.  A Marketing Premium of 1.25% is required for all business placed under this DPS by Wider Public Sector (WPS) users.

These fees are payable to CPC and will be based on the value of any awarded works or projects via the DPS. If a DPS supplier chooses not to bid for opportunities published via the DPS or are unsuccessful in their bids for DPS works or projects, there will be no marketing premium due. Any relevant marketing premiums due to CPC will be invoiced to the relevant DPS supplier at the end of the quarter.

These payments help support the management and marketing of the agreement to our members and users from the wider public sector. These requirements are detailed within the Minor Works DPS ITP document which applicants are required to complete and return to us in order to apply for a position on the DPS.
