Frameworks and Dynamic Purchasing Systems

Using existing frameworks and schemes, significantly reduces the lead time involved from a projects infancy phase to its final development. Being part of a framework or DPS allows procurement costs to be lowered and also provides certainty that everyone involved in the chain is fully compliant with the business rules.

Playle & Partners LLP are proud to be part of a number of frameworks and schemes which span across multiple county council districts. We are available through these to work on projects either via direct appointment on a rotational basis or through a mini competitions.

Below are the DPS and frameworks we appear on:
