Hertfordshire County Council (the ‘Council’) invites applications from suitably experienced and competent organisations who wish to pre-qualify onto its Dynamic Purchasing System (‘DPS’) for the Supply of Copier Paper.

The DPS is a two stage process and will be conducted in accordance with Regulation 34 of The Public Contracts Regulations 2015. Firstly, organisations apply by completing the Council’s online supplier questionnaire (‘SQ’). Organisations which satisfy the pre-determined selection requirements set out in the SQ will then be admitted to the DPS. Individual orders throughout the duration of the DPS will be awarded via competition during the second stage. Organisations admitted to the DPS should note that they won’t be invited to tender for competition(s) until they have signed and returned the DPS Agreement to the Council accordingly.

The pattern and volume of demand for Copier Paper may be subject to change and it is stressed that there are no undertakings concerning likely volume of demand. For the avoidance of doubt, each organisation admitted to the DPS acknowledges that, no form of exclusivity or volume guarantee is guaranteed by the Council for the Copier Paper and that the Council is at all times entitled to enter into other contracts and arrangements with other organisations for the provision of any or all Copier Paper which are the same or similar. Please note the Council is under no obligation to run a set number of competitions during the validity of the DPS.

The DPS will commence on the 16th January 2018 and will be for a core period of 2 years with the option for extensions up to a total further period of 2 years.
