Personal Support Services for Children, Young People and their Families

To seek Cabinet approval to form a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the provision of Personal Support services so spot placements can be called off under this made from 1 April 2019.

A Dynamic Purchasing System is similar to a framework however it is a completely online system. Unlike a framework, suppliers can apply to join a DPS at any point during the lifetime of the DPS.

The Dynamic Purchasing System will run for three years with the potential to be extended up to a further 24 months.

Providers will be admitted to the DPS once they are evaluated following a competitive procurement process to be the most suitable to meet the specification and quality requirements but also offer value for money.
