DWP procurement survey now open

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) wants to hear your views, thoughts and comments on how they procure programmes. They have issued a survey to help them develop a number of initiatives and to give providers the opportunity to tell them the aspects of procurement that they do well and the things they still have room to improve.   The survey is in 3 parts and covers:

  • Section A - 2020 DWP Employment Category Supplier Survey
  • Section B - Commercial Agreement for Employment and Health-Related Services (CAEHRS) – Feedback on the recent competition 
  • Section C - Market Engagement: Tier 3 and Flexible Support Fund (FSF) Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) 2

Your feedback and input is valuable to the future design of Tier 3 and FSF DPS 2 and how DWP develops and improves what they deliver and how. Please access the background document attached below prior to completing the survey.

Please use this link to access the survey: https://getinvolved.dwp.gov.uk/03-finance/a2e26fde/ 

Please note that any answers you provide will be treated anonymously and that there is the ability to save and go back to the survey, so there is no need to complete it all in one go.

The deadline for the completion of the survey will be 20th November.

If you have any difficulties accessing the survey please raise your query at commercialdirectorate.employmentcategory@dwp.gov.uk
