If you’d like to work with us as a sub-contractor, please submit an application to join our Delivery Partner Dynamic Purchasing System (“DPS”).

To find out more read our Guide to becoming a pre-approved delivery partner .

If you’re not already registered on the ProContract procurement portal, you can register for free here. (By registering on the ProContract portal, you will also enable your organisation to express interest in working with other organisations in addition to NCG Corporation.) Once registered, you can complete your response to join our Delivery Partner DPS.

Organisations with a response that meets minimum selection criteria will be admitted onto the DPS and invited to submit tenders (Mini or Further Competition requests) for specific services when needed.

Please note that as the DPS applications received will be batched in rounds. The deadline for each application round will be published on ProContract.

If you have any technical difficulty in accessing our DPS or require any further assistance with registering on the ProContract portal please email and quote ProContract Opportunity ID reference DN1040.

If you have already been accepted onto the NCG Dynamic Purchasing System as a Pre-approved Delivery Partner, our Guide for already pre-approved partners gives you an overview of each section of our Subcontract Management Framework (SMF).
