Durham University intends to implement a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to deliver External Coaching requirements to both senior academic and senior support staff. The tender will follow the restricted procedure under the Public Procurement Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015).

The DPS will run for a period of four (4) year initially with the option to extend for a further 1+1 year(s).

The framework will be structured in the following way:

Lot 1 - Academic Coaching

Lot 2 - Professional Services Coaching

Lot 3 - Team or Group Coaching

Lot 4 - Specialist Coaching

There are no restrictions in Supplier(s) applying for multiple Lots, if they feel they have the appropriate experience and qualifications.

Based on historical data, the estimated spend on external coaching services over a four (4) year period is £180,000. The University does not guarantee any level of business however, under this agreement.

The initial close date on this notice is to establish the DPS framework. The DPS will reopen, and remain open, to receive further submissions from interested Supplier(s) until the close date: 23/09/2024
