- An energy management, fuel supply and sustainability company - on their participation to Aspire Housing's public procurement procedure for an energy services provider, who will act as an agent to establish and manage a dynamic purchasing system (DPS) on its behalf. Advised on the developments in public procurement in relation to framework agreements and the effects of Brexit in this context, and also provided a comparative study of framework agreements and DPS in the UK, including advantages and disadvantages. Advised on the public procurement law aspects of the agreements under the DPS, which was established last year. This matter is of a strategic importance in the UK, where use of the DPS is not widespread although the number of public authorities choosing to implement the DPS is now starting to increase. To the best of our knowledge, this type of agency agreement will be one of the first such agreements in this field.
