Welcome to NEPO's new website

Welcome to the North East Procurement Organisation's (NEPO) updated website that aims to offer an improved online experience to suppliers and public sector partners.

NEPO works in partnership with North East local authorities on the strategic procurement of high value goods and services in order to deliver savings, maximise efficiencies and promote best practice. NEPO also works closely with the region’s supply base to boost competitive skills, signpost tendering opportunities and improve procurement processes.

Steven Sinclair, Head of Procurement at NEPO said:

“As one of the country’s leading Public Buying Organisations (PBOs), with a portfolio of nationally available public sector solutions, it is essential that our stakeholders are able to easily access up-to-date information on our services. Whether you are a supplier wishing to attend free training sessions to improve your tendering skills, or a public sector buyer looking for an expertly procured national framework - the new and improved NEPO website will provide you with a wealth of information in a user-friendly and professional format.”

Councillor Veronica Dunn (Newcastle City Council), Chair of NEPO’s Collaborative Procurement Sub Committee said:

“2016 marks a significant milestone for NEPO as the organisation celebrates its 40th anniversary. I am confident that NEPO’s improved online presence will not only help the organisation to share its achievements to date, but will also deliver wider benefits by signposting the region’s supply base to opportunities to engage in public sector tendering.”
