Integrated Employment & Skills Services - Dynamic Purchasing System
Southampton City Council is setting up a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the provision of a range of employment, skills and related support services within the city of Southampton. The DPS is also intended to apply to equivalent services in the city of Portsmouth and the counties of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Southampton City Council (the Council) and its partner organisations are committed to provide opportunity and growth for its local residents and businesses. Transforming the wider Hampshire area will require us to build a knowledge-rich and creative economy, one which will require world class education and skills amongst our entire workforce. We want employer-led demand for skills and labour to be matched with local supply whereby all our residents can benefit from, and contribute to the resultant economic growth, through which dependency on public funds are reduced and quality of life is enhanced for all.
We are seeking increased local determination to align public funds across traditional boundaries to maximise responsiveness and effectiveness, and are developing this Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) of employment and skills providers to enable us to commission innovative and wide ranging services aimed at improving the employment opportunities of local residents. We are seeking experienced Service Providers to deliver a high quality range of employment, skills and related support services within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight area, including the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth.
Southampton City Council is opening the DPS agreement for use by other Local Authorities and Public Sector Bodies.
