NEPO Issues Annual Supplier Survey

The North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) has issued its third annual supplier survey.   The survey is targeted at suppliers who have tendered for work with NEPO and North East local authorities over the last 12 months.

The survey results will:

  • Inform improvements to current procurement practices
  • Highlight any barriers faced by suppliers so that NEPO can shape its support and improve the overall supplier experience.
  • Help NEPO to prioritise its partnership activities with business representative groups and other agencies and bodies.
Nicola Shelley, Senior Procurement & Service Manager at NEPO said:
Our supply base has given an excellent level of response over the past two years and we are confident that the 2015 survey will build on this. The annual survey is a critical part of our supplier engagement programme, the results of which will help NEPO to add value to procurement activity and support the growth of the North East economy.”
