Do I need to use the PCS0 pin to activate the SPI in slave mode?

I am using a K22FN on a custom board where I am interfacing SPI1 in slave mode to some SPI 'like' master device.

 

This device does not generate a chip select signal. Instead it uses two I/O signals. One to signal the start of a new cycle and one to signal the start of new 16 bit word transfer after which the clock starts for the data transfer.

 

As such I had not connected the PCS0 input and instead configured that pin as a general I/O.

 

However, I can't seem to get my device to transmit anything in slave mode.

 

Does the PCS0 need to be used? Or can I set it to enabled in software? If not, can I tie the pin to a fixed level?
