A Marketing Premium of 1% is required for all business placed under this DPS by CPC Educational Member Institutions. A Marketing Premium of 1.5% 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.
