Extended TitleProvision of Local Bus Services and School Bus Services - Dynamic Purchasing System
Extended Description

Lancashire County Council procure local and school bus services in Lancashire. The transport services are arranged and funded by Lancashire County Council.

In addition the services include local bus services across the county and into adjoining local authority areas that are complimentary to bus services provided on a commercial basis and the provision of home to school journeys within Lancashire and surrounding areas.

It is the Authority's intention to operate a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the future provision of these services.

The DPS will be split into 2 categories:

— category 2: School bus services.

To be appointed onto the DPS suppliers must hold specific operator licences for PSV transport services and meet minimum quality standards covering a range of areas including insurance, vehicles, contract standards, driver training and appropriate clearance and customer care.

Services are developed by the Public and Integrated Transport Team and are let as individual contracts. These are tendered by way of a mini-competition between the appointed suppliers.

Further information including details on how the DPS will operate, terms and conditions, specifications, pictorialuser guides, the selection questionnaire required to be completed when requesting to participate in the DPS and evaluation award criteria to be used to award contracts from the DPS can be found on the link titled provision of local bus services and school bus services in Lancashire — Dynamic Purchasing System which can be located on the following webpage: www.lancashire.gov.uk/business/tenders-and-procurement/tenders/
