NEPO shortlisted for two prestigious awards

NEPO’s innovative approach to procuring specialist professional services has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards; LGC Awards (Innovation category) and Public Finance Innovation Awards (Good Governance category).

The award entries focussed on NEPRO, a neutral vendor approach to the procurement of specialist professional services.

Councillor Veronica Dunn (Newcastle City Council), Collaborative Procurement Sub-Committee Chair, said:

“NEPRO has been widely adopted across the UK public sector and continues to grow from strength to strength, delivering choice and value for money to the sector. I am delighted that the innovation and achievements reflected in our award entry have been recognised alongside our fellow local government finalists.”

Steven Sinclair, Head of Procurement at NEPO, said:

“This recognition is great news for NEPO and its Member Authorities. NEPO has worked closely with our delivery partner, Bloom, to maximise the benefits of NEPRO across the public sector, providing choice through a dynamic supply chain, supporting social value and driving quality outcomes. Being shortlisted gives NEPO the opportunity to showcase our achievements and share learning across the wider public sector.”

The award winners will be announced at the LGC Awards ceremony on 21 March 2018 and at the Public Finance Innovation Awards on 25 April 2018.
