NEPRO³ awarded to Bloom

NEPO is pleased to announce that Bloom has been appointed as delivery partner to the multi-billion-pound NEPRO³ specialist professional services solution for up to a further eight years.

The NEPRO vendor neutral managed service solution was established by NEPO to help the UK public sector buy and manage specialist professional services in a different way, whilst achieving better outcomes and improving value for money. NEPRO³ builds on the successes of the previous iterations, starting in 2012, as the only solution of its kind within the UK public sector marketplace. The vast knowledge, expertise and data obtained as a result will be used to enhance the collaborative and buyer/supplier user communities under the future offering.

Bloom continue to be the UK’s exclusive operator of the NEPRO³ solution. We look forward to building on the relationship we have with the many public sector organisations utilising the solution across the various sectors.

Specialising in bringing together buyers and suppliers, Bloom has over 6,500 suppliers registered, allowing them access to opportunities across over 320 public sector organisations. Bloom has successfully completed over 4,500 projects from very small to multi-million-pound opportunities across the public sector.

Opening up procurement to SME suppliers is a key aspect of the NEPRO solution. To date, 70% of projects have been delivered by SMEs enabling the public sector to drive significant growth back into local economies and remove barriers previously faced.
