The Council intends to let a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the provision of the construction related consultancy. A DPS is a procurement procedure compliant with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. It is a fully electronic system. It operates with the benefits of a framework agreement, whereby Candidates confirm at the time of application that they will comply with the DPS Agreement terms and the Call-Off Contract terms published with the DPS, but permits more flexibility than a framework agreement by allowing additional Candidates to be admitted to the DPS during its lifetime.

The DPS will have an initial term of four years, with the option to be extended by up to a further two years.

The Contracting Authorities intend to use the DPS to call for competition among Admitted Participants in order to award Call-Off Contracts for the provision of construction related consultancy services. The anticipated total value of these Call-Off Contracts is ?2 million to ?5 million over the term of the DPS.

The categories into which the DPS is split, each of which covers a role relating to the construction industry from RIBA stages 0-7, which are as follows:

1. Architectural Services

2. Landscape Architect

3. Asbestos Surveyor

4. Building Surveyor
