The importance of market consultation

NEPO’s latest annual supplier survey identified that 93% suppliers find pre-procurement market consultation valuable. NEPO recognise the importance of getting market consultation right and has developed a Market Consultation Guide for internal use by our procurement teams.

The guide helps NEPO procurement teams:
  • Understand the benefits of engaging with the market
  • Understand what the procurement requirement is in relation to what the market may be able to offer
  • Maximise the potential for local supply and the achievement of social value.

Associate Members can therefore rest assured that NEPO’s procurement solutions reflect market insight and best-practice.
