Attracting new customers through NEPO associate membership

Did you know that the majority of NEPO solutions are accessible by all UK public sector organisations? This presents an opportunity for us to work together to increase business via NEPO solutions. Contracting authorities simply sign up to NEPO’s associate membership scheme in order to access our procurement solutions.

Membership is free-of-charge and saves the customer from having to undertake their own procurement activity (saving an estimated £8k in procurement officer time), whilst providing access to compliant and value-for-money solutions.

Associate Membership is available to local authority councils, educational establishments, emergency services, NHS bodies, registered charities, registered social landlords and central government departments & their agencies.
