Greater South East Energy Hub - Energy Efficiency Retrofit Opportunity
The Greater South East Energy Hub installer Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Energy Efficiency Measures under Green Homes Grant: Local Authority Delivery Scheme Phase 2 is now live.
This is an opportunity for PAS2030:2019 and MCS accredited trades to access £69m energy efficiency measures to be delivered by local authorities across the Greater South East region in 2021. The Dynamic Purchasing System will be running until March 2026 and will be available for all local authorities and social housing providers in the Greater South East region to use to procure contractors for energy efficiency measures.
A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is public sector procurement tool for buying works, services and goods. The Greater South East Energy Hub Trades DPS is a two-stage process, the first stage is setup, all suppliers who meet the selection criteria are admitted to the DPS. Suppliers can join each month when the opportunity opens. Individual contracts for works are awarded in the second stage. In this second stage the authority invites all suppliers on the DPS (or the relevant category within the DPS) to bid for the specific contract. This is suitable for small to medium sized companies.
We are holding a free supply chain event on the 23rd March 2021 in association with the Built Environment Network to explain how it works, what the jargon means, pitfalls to avoid and how to get on board. Don’t worry if you are not ready to join the DPS this month as the portal for new suppliers will open every month. Register for the event now:
Not accredited to PAS2030 or MCS? – Free or subsidised training is now available for tradespeople or businesses who install energy efficiency measures or low carbon heating and want to carry out work under the Green Homes Grant schemes:
