This notice involves the setting up of a dynamic purchasing system.
Warwickshire County Council invites applications from suitably experienced operators for admission to their Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the provision of bus transport services (home to school and local bus services).
The required vehicle size for this contract is 9 seats or more.
The Dynamic Purchasing System will be used for the provision of bus transport services for home to school and local bus services. Passenger assistants may be required on some routes.
Once the DPS is established, operators will be advised of the opportunities available as and when they arise— operators can then choose whether they want to bid for the requirement or not (it is not compulsory to bid for every opportunity offered, all operators within DPS will be informed of the opportunity, but can choose whether or not to bid on an individual basis).
Tender opportunities are likely to be offered either via an electronic auction (e-auction) exercise or via an electronic quote mechanism (currently In-tend).
Warwickshire County Council will be using its e-tendering system (In-Tend) for the administration of this procurement process and providers must register with the system to be able to express an interest.

Registration and use of In-Tend is free. Once registered, all correspondence for this procurement process must be via the in-tend correspondence function. However, if you are unable to register with the website please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
