A DPS is a procurement tool for works, services and goods. Dynamic purchasing systems are explained in more detail on our DPS page.
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.
CPC’s Sourcing Cloud makes it easy to perform and manage further competition exercises. It’s free for CPC members to use and offers quick, compliant access to all suppliers on the DPS. Use the ‘Get a quote’ button to create a Sourcing Cloud account and send your further competition to the DPS suppliers.
A further competition template is available in the Associated Documentation section on this page. Help using Sourcing Cloud is available in our Sourcing Cloud User Guide.
