Dynamic purchasing system of eProcurement tools

Dynamic purchasing system of eProcurement tools

The NPS Delivery Group has requested that the NPS undertake a procurement exercise for eProcurement tools.

The current arrangements for eTradingWales and eTenderWales are in place until 11 January 2019. The target for the new arrangements to be in place is the end of June 2018.

Future funding arrangements for the services are currently subject to ministerial approval. However, to allow sufficient time for any procurement which may be required, the NPS Delivery Group has decided to begin the process. This will ensure that there is no gap in service provision.

A prior information notice for a 'dynamic purchasing system of eProcurement tools’ (DPS) for the Welsh Public sector was published on the 21st December 2017.

The scope of the DPS includes:

  • sourcing
  • auctions
  • evaluation
  • contract award
  • electronic signatures
  • catalogues
  • invoicing
  • contract lifecycle management
  • training
  • supporting professional services.

2 engagement sessions which will give NPS customer organisations the opportunity to contribute to the planning process will be held via a GoToMeeting on the following dates:

23rd January 2018 9:30 to 11:00

24th January 2018 9:00 to 10:30

Please register for either event indicating your preference by emailing the NPS ICT Category Team at

GoToMeetings are limited in the number of attendees. If demand exceeds the number of available spaces, we will consider holding an additional session the following week.
