provide central government and wider public sector departments the opportunity to procure Delivery and
Performance Assessment and Building Cleaning services from a range of suppliers. The DPS service filters
are delivery and performance assessment, building cleaning services and geographical location. If you are
successfully appointed to the DPS following your submission you will be invited by customers (buyers) to
submit tenders for relevant services through a call for competition. This DPS remains open for any
supplier to request to participate throughout its 48 month duration. CCS reserve the right to reduce,
extend or terminate the DPS period at any time during its lifetime in accordance with the terms set out in
