Register for the Digital Connectivity: Services to Understand Mobile Coverage and Performance Dynamic Purchasing System.

The Digital Infrastructure and Connectivity team within 51¥ (WorcsCC) are working with colleagues from Gwynedd Council [the host Authority for Ambition North Wales] (GC), Herefordshire Council (HC), Shropshire Council (SC), Staffordshire County Council (SCC) and Warwickshire County Council (WarksCC) (herein known collectively as the Partners) to procure services from Suppliers through this Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for their digital connectivity programmes.

The Digital Connectivity: Services to Understand Mobile Coverage and Performance Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) has been set up so that each partner can draw services from the lots or categories setup within it either individually or working with other Partners.

Once the DPS has been established and the initial set up phase completed, Partners can release ITTs for Suppliers to bid for and finally award a contract to for that piece of work.

Tenders can range from:

  • individual Partner tenders through to joint Partner tenders
  • across the lotsorcategoriesthat have been set up
  • a drawing of the services at different times within the scope of the DPS as required by the individual or joint tenders
  • a ‘Pick and Mix’ approach as to which services are required by individual or joint tenders

For further information on DPS please read the documentation provided.

Why should I register as a Supplier?

The Digital Connectivity: Services to Understand Mobile Coverage and Performance Dynamic Purchasing System has been set up for the next five years and has a high value of expected contracts attached to it (approximately £1.5m to one and a half million pounds).

Partners are encouraging as many Suppliers as possible to sign up to give them the opportunity to bid for these contracts and opportunities, which will only be available through the DPS.

Funding for the services delivered within the DPS will come from the lead Partner (in joint tenders) or from the individual Partner that has requested those services.
