The following Public Law Q&A provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) allows a contracting authority to purchase goods, services and works for which they have a regular need, without having to carry out a full procurement process for each individual purchase.

DPS awards are conducted electronically and governed by the restricted procedure under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, SI 2015/102, reg 28, subject to the additional rules specific to DPS under in PCR 2015, SI 2015/102, reg 34.
