Responsive Repairs, Voids & Planned Maintenance DPS

Our DPS provides our customers with a quick, effective and compliant way to manage their projects. Some aspects of the model are similar to a framework – but an important difference is that suppliers can join or leave the DPS at any time. This provides you with greater flexibility. It also makes it easier for you to be included in tender opportunities for customers you have an existing relationship with.

The model allows for responsive works, void works and planned works are a variety of different levels. We’ve designed it this way so that both smaller customers and suppliers can benefit.
