This Information Technology (IT) Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) has been developed by The Swaythling Housing Society, trading as Abri, to help meet the requirements of obtaining IT and related services over the next 4-8 years.

The services under the DPS cover Abri's IT hardware requirements of varying nature (which may include maintenance and support). This is not a comprehensive list and the DPS will be flexible to capture emerging requirements throughout its lifetime which fall within the remit of IT Hardware.

This DPS is a multiple stage process conducted under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. The first stage for Providers interested in delivering work through this DPS is to register with In-Tend and complete the enrolment questionnaire. The enrolment questionnaire will require providers to submit details relating to their organisation which will be assessed by Abri, successful providers will be admitted onto the DPS. The DPS will always be open, meaning providers can apply at any time and providers who have previously been unsuccessful may re-apply once they have taken any corrective action.

Being accepted onto the DPS is no guarantee of work, but will allow providers to view and tender for Call-Off contract opportunities which may arise.

Call-off contracts may be available at any point during the life of the DPS and will only be available for those providers who are admitted on to the DPS.

How to obtain the Tender Documents
The Tender documents can be accessed when logged into In-Tend by selecting 'View Details' on the relevant tender advert and clicking the 'Express Interest' tab. Once in the tender there are five tabs - 'Tender', 'Enrolment', 'Correspondence', 'Clarifications' and 'History'. Select the 2nd tab (Enrolment) where you will find useful information under 'Tender Details' continue to scroll down to the heading 'Tender Documents Received' where you will be able to view / download the documents.
