Automation Marketplace DPS



100,000,000 GBP


Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has set up a dynamic purchasing system for the supply of automation applications and services. CCS is inviting bidders to request to participate in the automation marketplace DPS. This DPS will provide central government and wider public sector departments the opportunity to procure an extensive range of automation services and licences to support digital transformation, including strategy and business transformation, problem solving with tech solutions, resource and training, and software licences. If you are successfully appointed to the DPS following your submission you will be invited by customers (buyers) to submit tenders for relevant services through a call for competition. This DPS remains open for any supplier to request to participate throughout the duration of the DPS. CCS reserves the right to reduce, extend or terminate the DPS period at any time during its lifetime in accordance with the terms set out in the DPS contract. Additional information: This DPS has been extended for 12 months. The reasoning for this is to allow an appropriate amount of time to design the replacement agreement. Please note the Closing Date, Contract Start Date and Contract End Date have been manipulated to support compatibility system issues. However please refer to the contract notice for the correct dates, timelines etc. The value provided in Section II.1.5) is only an estimate. The Authority cannot guarantee to suppliers any business through this DPS Agreement. The Authority expressly reserves the right: (i) not to award any DPS Agreement as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and (ii) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the customer be liable for any costs incurred by the suppliers. (iii) to make changes to the management charge applicable to this DPS in relation to both the percentage charged and the methodology used. We consider that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 ("TUPE") may apply at the call for competition. It is the Supplier's responsibility to take their own advice and consider whether TUPE is likely to apply in the particular circumstances of the contract and to act accordingly. On 2.4.2014 Government introduced its Government Security Classifications (GSC) scheme which replaced Government Protective Marking Scheme (GPMS). A key aspect is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All bidders should make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this requirement. The link below to provides information on the GSC at: Cyber Essentials is a mandatory requirement for central government contracts which involve handling personal information or provide certain ICT products/services.
