DPS contracts

The DWP DPS or Dynamic Purchasing system is the Department for Work & Pension’s new system for managing suppliers and any providers. DPS contracts are awarded locally and the system is designed to significantly reduce any time and cost in putting together tenders for contracts.

The whole idea is to make Government contracts more accessible to small and medium sized businesses.
