Fáilte Ireland are seeking requests for Professional Development and Corporate Training Providers to participate in a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).

We are seeking partners to join us in submitting a bid. Interested parties must be qualified to provide training in at least one of the 24 lots and have public or private training expereince.

Project Description

Fáilte Ireland is Ireland's national tourism agency.

The training services they require includes:

A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), is a tool set out in the EU procurement directives for the procurement of supplies, works or services of all values. It is essentially a database of applicants interested in being considered for the award of contracts, as and when they arise. It is a pool of suppliers that can be constantly refreshed. The number of candidates to be admitted to a DPS shall not be limited. However, bidders must meet the minimum qualification criteria laid down by Fáilte Ireland.

By bidding in a consortium, training providers will be able to meet these criteria as a group and qualify for opportunities they would not be able to compete for on their own.

The training will supplied can include:

  • Access to Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for individual employees and groups

  1. People Management
  2. Leadership Development
  3. Financial Management
  4. Human Resource Management
  5. Project Management
  6. Sales and Marketing
  7. Digital Marketing
  8. Communication Skills 
  9. Media Skills

Key Risks, Constraints & Dependencies

Fáilte Ireland has a number of other criteria around technical systems to manage the contract, insurance, quality assurance measures, data protection, environmental policy, business continuity plan, sustainability. We will be the prime contractor and and we have the policies and systems in place to meet these criteria - but each consortium member will have to commit to following the ways of working as agreed by all of the consortium members.
