The GSEEH installer Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Energy Efficiency Measures is now live.
Greater South East Energy Hub Trades DPS (due-north.com)
This is an opportunity for PAS2030:2019 and MCS accredited trades to access £69 million energy efficiency measures to be delivered by local authorities across the GSE in 2021. The DPS will be running until March 2026 and will be available for all local authorities and social housing providers in the GSE to use to procure contractors for energy efficiency measures.
A DPS is public sector procurement tool for buying works, services and goods. The GSEEH Trades DPS is a 2 stage process, the first stage is setup, all suppliers who meet the selection criteria are admitted to the DPS. Suppliers can join each month when the opportunity opens. Individual contracts for works are awarded in the second stage. In this stage the authority invites all suppliers on the DPS (or the relevant category within the DPS) to bid for the specific contract. This is suitable for small to medium sized companies.
We are holding a free supply chain event on the 23rd March in association with the Built Environment Network to explain how it works, what the jargon means, pitfalls to avoid and how to get on board. Don’t worry if you are not ready to join this month as the portal for new suppliers will open every month.
