NEPO publish 'Buyers Guide to NEPRO'

NEPO has published a short guide to help public sector buyers fully understand NEPRO - our innovative solution for the procurement of professional services.

Steven Sinclair, Head of Procurement at NEPO said:

"The public sector is under pressure to do more and more with less. That’s why NEPO works hard for its Member Authorities in the North East and Associate Members across the UK. We set up our first Neutral Vendor solution for specialist professional services in 2012. Following its success, NEPO wanted to continue to deliver the same benefits to our Members and Associate Members. We also wanted to make this solution explicitly accessible to the whole of the UK public sector. So I’m delighted to present our new Neutral Vendor solution for the efficient procurement of professional services, including consultancy. It’s delivered by NEPRO Ltd, appointed as single supplier following a competitive tender process from December 2015 for a period of four years.

This short guide will help you fully understand our innovative solution to this complex category of procurement. Unlike traditional solutions, NEPRO helps reduce your risk, deliver savings and facilitates compliance. This is all done in a unique way that maximises your return on investment. Better still, it helps you support smaller and local businesses with a fast, compliant process. This solution is available now for you, and for every UK public sector organisation. It covers nineteen specialist professional service categories. I’m confident it will help you to do more with less and I’m very proud that NEPO has pioneered this solution."
