Following engagement with our member Trusts, NOE CPC has opened a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to allow NHS organisations to access suitably qualified contractors for minor works and trades; by work category, geographical location and specific work-related accreditations and licences and for individual projects valued up to £500k.

NOE CPC will conduct the Stage 1-Application process, combining both the Cabinet Office Standard Selection Questionnaire (SQ) and PAS 91: 2013; the standardised PQQ developed by the British Standards Institute to reduce duplication within the construction industry.

All bidders who meet the selection criteria will be appointed to the DPS.

  • A flexible approach to source and deliver minor works and trades projects, suitable to the requirement
  • The DPS can streamline procurement for both suppliers and contracting authorities
  • Suppliers do not have to demonstrate suitability and capability every time they wish to compete for a public sector contract
  • Contracting authorities have the ability to publish a call for competition under reduced timescales, as the advertisement in OJEU and SQ stage already been undertaken
  • Access to a range of specialist, pre-approved potential providers by geographical location
  • Encourage and support local SME engagement
  • NOE CPC to manage the appointment of potential providers on to the DPS and the subsequent approved supplier lists
  • Social Value considerations – Local employment and skills open up job opportunities for local people. Develop links between construction activities and the education sector i.e. apprenticeships
  • Use of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) core criteria for assessment, aligned to the Government backed construction pre-qualification document PAS 91; including periodic reviews on a potential providers suitability and capability
  • Online functionality available for contracting authorities to filter their requirements by work category, geographical location and specific work-related accreditations and licences (optional).
