The Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Employment is a way for providers to engage with the Department for Work and Pension in supporting people to lift themselves out of poverty and helping people to get jobs. You can learn more about the DPS in the ERSA briefing on the Dynamic Purchasing System.

The DPS is a new way that DWP will procure employment provision to help people into work. It is an electronic system to set up and maintain a list of suppliers and offerings from which provision can be procured.

The DWP invites all interested parties to be part of this opportunity by registering on BRAVO; information on how to proceed and contact details are available via the BRAVO Contracts Finder.

Market status update newsletters are available for each of the seven regions via the links below, providing steer for providers placing their offers on the DPS. Each offers a breakdown of specific priorities at the District Operational Team level within the regions, as well as hints and tips for using the DPS. Some also contain contact details for local officials as well as upcoming engagement events.
