Sustainable economic growth and business growth is a key priority for Worcestershire County Council, the District Councils and the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Set out in our corporate plan, the Open for Business strategy focuses on 'rebalancing' Worcestershire's local economy through a series of measures aimed at encouraging and supporting private sector investment, business and employment growth.

Worcestershire County Council are looking to establish a dynamic purchasing system (DPS) to engage a range of providers that are able to deliver a broad and where required specialist mix of support. The organisations that are successful in being awarded a place on the DPS will be given a 'pre-approved' status and will be invited to submit applications when the Council have a requirement to contract support that fall within one of the categories in which the applicant organisation has expressed an interest.

The DPS will be split into the following categories:

Category 1 - Independent Advisors and Subject Experts
Category 2 - Innovation / Idea Management platform
Category 3 - Marketing and Communications
Category 4 - Digital Capture
Category 5 - Event Support
Category 6 - Open for Business Programme Support

Further details about entry onto the DPS can be found in the DPS document set.
