A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a procurement procedure that can be used to procure commonly and repeatedly-used purchases, which are generally available on the market, whilst speeding up the process and reducing the administrative burden on the part of all stakeholder

DPS is similar to an electronic framework agreement, with two exceptions:

  • new Economic Operators (EOs) can join a DPS at any time and
  • it can only be run as a completely electronic process

The DPS procedure is catered for in Regulations 174 to 180 of the Public Procurement Regulations (Legal Notice 352 of 2016)

Each DPS is established by a Central Purchasing Body (CPB) in respect of an identified type of requirement, which may be divided into categories of products, services or works.
