Merry Christmas from NEPO

The NEPO team would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and all the best for 2018.

​2017 has been a positive year for NEPO, with the continued delivery of a number of benefits to our stakeholders:
  • NEPO's portfolio of public sector procurement solutions has developed; new additions for 2017 include Construction & Engineering Consultancy, HGV & Specialist Vehicle Acquisition, Library Books, Milk & Dairy Products, and Translation & Interpreting.
  • Approximately 5,000 procurement opportunities were issued through the NEPO Portal e-tendering system.
  • NEPO's Stakeholder Engagement Group has used supplier feedback to develop an action plan that will maximise opportunities for local and SME organisations.
  • NEPO's Associate Membership scheme gained its 300th member​, and continues to grow as an increasing number of public sector organisations recognise the benefits of using NEPO's solutions.
  • Further investment in the NEPO Business Club programme has allowed NEPO to deliver tendering skills training to hundreds of suppliers.
  • The Social Value Delivery Group has worked with national partners to maximise social value outcomes.
  • NEPO has rolled out market consultation ​training for its procurement staff to ensure that suppliers have the opportunity to ​shape, and prepare for, procurement activity.
​We look forward to building on these successes over the coming year and will continue to keep you posted on progress via the NEPO website and our quarterly newsletters.
