DPS for Public Sector Energy Procurement

Our Public Sector Energy Procurement process is fully compliant under a Dynamic Purchasing System framework

Public sector organisations must procure energy through a compliant framework.
By using these frameworks, your organisation can effectively manage and minimise risks associated with public expenditure.
We've set up and oversee a fully compliant public sector procurement framework called the Newlon DPS.

Our Dynamic Purchasing System aligns with the Government Procurement Agreement under the World Trade Organization (WTO) to guarantee fair and transparent competition conditions.

How the DPS Works

DPS, or Dynamic Purchasing System, allows suppliers to join at any point, fostering increased competition and a broader array of service options.

For fixed and standalone flexible contracts, each tender is distributed to all suppliers within the relevant Lot of the DPS (see below), carefully considering the customer’s needs and preferences, such as price, service quality and energy type.
