In addition to the contractor and professional services lots, Innovation Chain North (ICN) has a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for the supply of modular housing. This is a new market offer and will enable clients to access modular suppliers direct for the provision of new homes in a compliant manner, having been procured under the Public Contract Regulations 2015. The modular housing DPS is supported by modular principal contractor (P1&P2) and groudworker (G1&G2) lots on the main ICN framework; providing clients with various routes to the delivery of modular homes.
As of January 2021, eight supplies have successfully signed up to the Modular DPS and we have a large number of other suppliers in the application process. The ICN Modular DPS is supporting the innovative Off-Site Homes Alliance which is a Pan-Northern collaboration seeking to mobilise more off-site development activity.
There are four lots in the DPS which cover different types of modular delivery. Each lot covers the whole of the North of England:
New suppliers can join at any time and the process is straightforward
Clients have a compliant direct route to modular manufacturers
Call off will be by mini competition only and everyone in the lot must be invited to tender
All mini competitions are managed in a completely electronic format with tenders issued via an e-tendering portal
