2014 NEPO Supplier Survey out now!

Do you want to share your experiences of tendering for North East local authority contracts?  If so, the 2014 NEPO Supplier Survey is available now for suppliers and providers to complete.

Nearly 500 organisations completed last year's survey with valuable information provided around financial assessments, fair payments and best practice from elsewhere.

The information from this year's survey will be used to inform any changes to local authority procurement practices following the introduction of the new EU Procurement Directives and the implementation of the Social Value Act.  It will also promote a better understanding of the challenges that suppliers and providers face when tendering and will help NEPO to prioritise partnership activities with business representative groups and other agencies and bodies.

The survey should take no more than 5 or 10 minutes to complete and will close on Friday 8th August. Click here to access the Survey.
