0763 - ECC Passenger Transport DPS
Main contract details
Essex County Council has established a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the procurement of its transport services including Education transport comprising transport to Mainstream and Special Educational Needs schools, Social Care transport for both adults and children and local bus services. We are looking to open up our access to the market through the use of a DPS, where new suppliers can join an approved list at any time throughout the lifetime of the initial 2 year contract which can be extended by up to a further 24 months. Through the introduction of more choice in the market, Essex County Council is ensuring that it follows best procurement practice by allowing healthy competition for each requirement. Once a supplier has enrolled on the DPS, they will benefit from the process efficiencies that come with the use of a technology platform. Suppliers will need to register and enrol for the system once in order to be able to bid for work the system is fully mobile compatible and will be the only route to market for Essex County Council. For full details of how to join the DPS and have access to these requirements please read the guidance documents and information provided. Whilst suppliers can register and enrol at any time operators are encouraged to submit their registration and enrolment as soon as possible.
