adam HTT have established a new Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) with Northamptonshire County Council for the provision of Passenger Transport Services.
Northamptonshire County Council provide some 700+ routes for home to school routes SEND and mainstream transport. In addition, they provide transportation services for adults and children receiving support from social services.
Northants chose a DPS to replace their existing framework to open up their marketplace to new suppliers and remove the limits on resources available to the authority.
The introduction of adam will deliver an end-to-end solution for all commissioning activities incorporating provider engagement, DPS establishment, provider accreditation and enrolment, competitive procurement, invoicing and payment.
The move to establish a DPS did not put an additional burden on the authority’s staff as part of the adam service was to undertake supplier engagement to promote, enrol and support existing and new transport operators.
Through working with adam, Northamptonshire County Council expects to:
- Develop an enlarged and dynamic supply base
- Save money on newly procured routes
- Streamline processes and improve efficiency
- Make it easier for suppliers to work with the authority
The solution has been put in place with Future Northants in mind, to facilitate a smooth transition to unitary authorities.
