- Lot 1: Public Sector Passenger Transport Services - Taxi & Coaches
- Register as a buyer. Note: although pages are headed ‘Supplier registration’ this is also where you can register as a buyer.
- You now have 2 options:
- View all appointed suppliers.
- Create a filter of suppliers who can meet your requirements:
- Use the filtering tool to specify your transport requirements, including geographical region(s). This will create a list of capable suppliers.
- You can save this category where you will return to a manage your category exports page, and all your saved filer exercises will show.
- Export the list of suppliers to see supplier and contact details (export is to an Excel spreadsheet).
- Exit the DPS.
- Use the list to run a further competition. You can use a Capability Assessment to identify the suppliers that can meet your requirements
- Invite the suppliers identified by the DPS to bid against your detailed specification, evaluation criteria and contract format
- The list is valid for only 2 working days, because new suppliers may apply to join at any point. If your further competition excludes eligible suppliers it potentially breaches procurement regulations. Obtain a fresh supplier list (steps 4 to 6) if you don’t use your list within 2 working days.
- You can use CCS’s eSourcing tool to run a further competition. The tool is free to use for public sector buyers.
- Allow at least 10 working days for supplier responses, or longer for more complex requirements.
- Evaluate the responses.
- Request from winning supplier(s) any required evidence that they can meet your requirements. Set them a deadline for submitting evidence of 2 working days.
- If you’re satisfied with the evidence, award the contract
- Where appropriate, notify of the award on Contracts Finder
