As a Public Authority in England and Wales you can access this official OJEU procurement system and use the DPS to conduct a mini competition amongst the approved list of suppliers.
There is an access fee of £750.00 to cover all the administration and the complete management of the process which is only payable when you sign the Access Agreement YPO manages the process from start to finish.
The services provided can be found on page 6 of the user guide.
To award a contract through the DPS you will need to undertake a mini competition, which will be fully managed and facilitated by YPO via the e-procurement portal.
You will tailor the mini competition to your authority, local requirements and your service specification.
YPO will manage the instructions to bidders and all clarifications.
The review of submissions, specification, evaluation criteria and decision making remains with you, and YPO will manage all the administration and will advise you throughout the process alongside your corporate procurement team if required.
YPO have a question library of pre-determined questions which test every aspect of the required services, so you can either pick from the library or include your own questions that you feel will suit your authority requirement the best.
You are able to include an Interview and Presentation section in the mini competition as appropriate to your requirements.
YPO will handle all administration, and will issue all notices to both successful and unsuccessful suppliers taking part in the mini competition.
In addition, YPO will provide feedback to unsuccessful suppliers and will manage any disputes.
YPO will also undertake the Contract Award process which can be for a period of up to 4 years.
