Provision of a Dynamic Purchasing System for Housing Planned Capital Maintenance Projects

To approve the implementation of a dynamic purchasing system (DPS) to manage the Council’s £35m planned maintenance spend for Housing.

It is recognised that the Council needs to refresh its approach to the management of its assets and delivery of planned programmes and major works to better meet its legal and statutory obligations. Underpinned by the Council’s Asset Management Strategy, a Total Asset Solution is being implemented, in pursuit of better quality, socially responsible and digitally driven services.
The bespoke DPS will support a more co-ordinated and agile project purchasing process for the delivery of the Total Asset Solution and will also provide:
- a compliant procurement vehicle to manage tenders for the Council’s housing planned capital maintenance project contracts,
- focus on enabling a more diverse range of suppliers to compete for contract opportunities within Lambeth and encourage the participation of local suppliers,
- encourage small business and those owned and operated by underrepresented groups to compete for Council contracts.
