Other Information

The DPS is a two-stage process. The first stage will see invitations to participate issued to selected supplier categories in three successive waves. There will no limit on the number of suppliers that may join the DPS for each service category. New suppliers can also apply to join the DPS at any point during its lifetime. Individual contracts are awarded during the second stage. In this stage, approved users of the DPS (referred to as Contracting Authorities) will invite all suppliers on the DPS for the service category and location required to bid for a specific contract. During the DPS validity period, a Contracting Authority will be able to search for Potential Providers that match their requirements using: work category, location of project, value of project and any other criteria deemed necessary and available within the standard search criteria Each Contracting Authority will be allowed to issue a Capability Assessment as part of its Mini-Competition to establish a final supplier list to invite to tender. It is also possible to combine categories where there are clear synergies and common industry precedents. The type of services that may be procured under the DPS may include but are not limited to those services identified by CPV code and summarised in section II.2. The precise limit and extent of every potential service however, cannot be clearly defined at this stage. NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP) in collaboration with Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust wishes to establish a Framework Agreement for use by current and future LPP clients, including without limitation: (i) any National Health Service (NHS) Trust NHS Entities; (iii) other UK public sector bodies; (and their statutory successors and public sector health organisations and/or other public sector organisations created as a result of government reorganisation in the UK) and public sector bodies (or “public sector body” in the singular) include but are not to be limited to the following list: — LPP clients, — Collaborative Procurement Partnership (NHS CPP)* clients — Local Authorities, — Educational Establishments, — Registered providers and emergency services, — NHS Bodies, — Hospices, — Central government departments and their agencies, — Public Corporations, — Police forces in the United Kingdom, — Fire and Rescue Services, — Registered Social Landlords (Housing Associations), — Third Sector and Charities. * Collaborative Procurement Partnership (NHS CPP), is comprised of NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC), NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP), NHS Commercial Solutions and East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub (EOE CPH), and all of their clients and members. The DPS Agreement includes the terms and conditions for subsequent Call-Offs, but places no obligations on approved users of the DPS to procure any Estates Facilities Consultancy Services. The DPS in itself is therefore not a contract; contracts are only formed when works are called-off under the DPS. The Invitation to Tender documents issued by Contracting Authorities for specific call-off contracts will specify the terms and conditions for the execution of the service. Evaluation Criteria will be determined for each mini-competition by the Contracting Authority and set out in the tender documents. Please note that LPP will be facilitating call-offs from the DPS for which there will be a nominal management levy to cover administration costs.
