“We are extremely grateful to the support provided by the FCN Commercial Team with our tender exercise that was set against an extremely challenging timeline. Ruth provided us with clear advice and guidance on the use of the DPS, that then allowed us to award a contract at pace, whilst ensuring that all technical and commercial requirements were fulfilled”
Faye Ryan, Head of Procurement Dyfed Powys Police
Using a dynamic approach gives policing and suppliers a flexible and agile framework, meaning new suppliers can join at any time and existing suppliers can apply for additional lots as they grow and develop new ways of working.
It also allows greater and easier access to suppliers for policing, using standardisation and efficiency to benefit all.
Forces can build and amend their requirements continually over the DPS’s eight-year duration, encouraging suppliers to respond to their developing needs.
It also provides an automated electronic process, with an entirely paperless system for both forces and suppliers.
