Managing the Market and Commercialisation
The West London Alliance has set up a number of Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS). A DPS is a completely electronic system, and is an "open market" to provide access to a pool of suppliers for a number of services. The purpose of these systems is to enable the West London Alliance to encourage competition, deliver value for money and engage suppliers to maximise supply.
Please note that all registrations for these DPS will be via the Due North e-sourcing tool
