The Challenge

According to the Local Government Association, setting up a DPS can be an administrative burden. These burdens are typically seen at the set-up and vetting stages. Large numbers of suppliers need to be identified, engaged and supported through the process. Where new DPS arrangements haven’t worked customers have engaged adam to fix the problems. We’ve helped 16 local authorities make their dynamic purchasing systems fit for purpose via adam and make significant cost savings and process efficiencies. A large number of Councils saved over £2 million on like-for-like routes.

The Solution

Our end-to-end commissioning solution incorporates provider engagement, DPS establishment, provider accreditation and enrolment, competitive procurement, contracting, invoicing and payments.

How it works?

We facilitate the commissioning of transport routes on a requirement by requirement basis through an online platform. adam recommends a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to contract with suppliers in a compliant and transparent manner (as set out in the PCR 2015 Regulations). 

The platform is underpinned by a wide suite of professional services, which ensure that you get the best from adam and your commissioning activities. This includes: a fully managed implementation process; initial supplier onboarding; ongoing account management and service delivery management, and access to our fully staffed support centre.

During the implementation phase, the system is configured with a workflow unique to your requirements. To monitor success of the programme ‘current state’ is agreed prior to go live and a workable baseline is agreed.
