The contracting authority must evaluate the organisation's submission within 10 workings days of receipt, which may be extended to 15 working days if justified. An organisation can update their submission at any time whilst they sit on the DPS. If they are unsuccessful in their 1 submission to be placed on the DPS they can submit again at any time.Feedback will be provided to unsuccessful organisations explaining why they did not meet the selection criteria. If an organisation who is placed on the DPS does not keep their information up to date or falls below the selection criteria they can be removed from the DPS. They can still reapply to be placed back on the DPS at any time.The use of a DPS will help Barnsley College to respond quickly to requirements by having a list of pre-approved partners for delivery. It will help organisations by ensuring that they are sent details of all opportunities to partner with Barnsley College.If an organisation is placed on the DPS they will receive details of all opportunities to partner with Barnsley.
