Warwickshire County Council invites applications from operators who wish to be considered for selection for the Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the provision of Bus Transport Services (home to school and local bus services).
The required vehicle size for this contract is 9 seats or more.
Passenger assistants may be required on some routes.
The Council’s requirements for this provision will only be offered to those suppliers who have applied to join, and been accepted onto the DPS.
The DPS will comprise of a list of pre-approved operators who will then have the opportunity to tender for business opportunities as they arise.
Once the DPS is established, operators will be advised of the opportunities available as and when they arise – operators can then choose whether they want to bid for the requirement or not. (It is not compulsory to bid for every opportunity offered, all operators within the DPS will be informed of the opportunity, but can choose whether or not to bid on an individual basis).

Tender opportunities are likely to be offered either via an electronic auction (e-auction) exercise or via an electronic quote mechanism (currently In-tend). Operators will therefore be required to have access to a computer with internet and email capability in order to participate.
