Hampshire County Council invites applications from suitably experienced organisations who wish to be considered for selection to tender for admission to the Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the Provision of Transportation 16 Seats and fewer for Home to School Transport, Education and Adult/Children Transportation Requirements, General Transportation Services.
The DPS will commence on 1.8.2016 and will operate for 5 years 7 months, with the option to extend in annual increments up to a maximum of 10 years and 7 months. New suppliers may apply to join the DPS at any time from 2.8.2016 onwards if they are unsuccessful at the initial set-up stage.
The Contracting Authority views that the range of services to be procured during this tender should be awarded as a multiple supplier DPS and seeks applications from suitably experienced suppliers who wish to pre-qualify for this service. Whilst every effort has been made to consider the full scope of the requirement, the Contracting Authority does not guarantee the volume of the services required resulting from this DPS or that it will accept any pre-qualification on completion of the procurement exercise.
If a supplier ceases to meet the original exclusion or selection criteria during the course of the DPS it is likely that it may be excluded. Therefore the Supplier will be asked to re-confirm that they still meet the criteria of the PQQ and that there have been no material changes.
Suppliers may apply to join the DPS at any-time after the initial DPS set up (2.8.2016 onwards) even if they have been unsuccessful at the initial DPS set-up. Once a Supplier is listed on the DPS, they will be expected to maintain and meet the original exclusion and selection criteria during the course of the DPS.
