​Market Consultation: Rock Salt

NEPO has invited suppliers to participate in market consultation activity, to help shape a new procurement solution for the supply of rock salt.

The solution will cover the supply of rock salt, with bulk and bagged options, for spreading on highways and footpaths for winter maintenance. The rock salt will be delivered direct to user storage facilities.

The market consultation activity includes:
  • A short survey seeking views on the proposed tender specification and evaluation criteria. The survey can be accessed from the NEPO Portal (a NEPO Portal account is required, registration is free of charge). The survey deadline is 15.00 Friday 25 October.
  • A market consultation event taking place in Newcastle on 8 November. The event will be an opportunity to discuss NEPO’s proposed approach and offer further feedback. There may also be an opportunity for 1:1 meetings, depending on the level of demand. Suppliers can register their interest in attending via the above survey.
NEPO plans to issue tender documentation in November 2019. The solution will commence from 1 April 2020 (with a 48 month duration).
