London Warrant Enforcement (LWE) Is pleased to announce we have been accepted onto the Yorkshire Procurement Organisation (YPO) Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) until June 2022, we have gone through the mandatory, selection and establishment requirements and have achieved a score of 100% quality mark set against a strict criteria outlined by the Purchasing System tender process for use by the public sector in regard to enforcement services under the Taking Control of Goods Regulations.

What is a Dynamic Purchasing System?

The Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a procedure available for contracts for works, services and goods commonly available on the market. As a procurement tool, it has some aspects that are similar to an electronic framework agreement, but where new suppliers can join at any time. However, it has its own specific set of requirements. It is to be run as a completely electronic process, and should be set up using the restricted procedure and some other conditions (as set out in Regulation 34 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015). Contracting authorities, including central purchasing bodies, may set up a DPS. The DPS should be set up for identified types of requirement, which may be divided into categories of products, works or services.
