What is our Dynamic Purchasing System?
Our Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is a procurement purchasing process designed for the Public Sector. If a public sector organisation spends over £189,330 on energy, then they are required to purchase this in a way that meets Public Contracts Regulation 2015 (PCR 2015) We launched our very own DPS in conjunction with Gwynedd Council back in 2019 to support the public sector. If you are a public sector organisation and do not purchase your energy compliantly, you are at risk of receiving penalties.
Gwynedd Council is the Framework Operator for the DPS, and Beond Group is the sole appointed framework procurement agents. Beond Group manages the Framework Agreement, including all call-off contracts and brokering services.
