NEPO has launched its new Supplier Partnership Programme to help regional suppliers win more public procurement opportunities. The programme helps suppliers to find, bid for and win future contracts through a new programme of events, workshops, and support sessions.

The programme kicked off on Monday 27 November with a half-day event aimed at helping local and regional suppliers take the first step into working with the public sector.

Keith Lamb, social value and supplier coordinator at NEPO, said: “It was fantastic to see so many regional suppliers at our Introduction to Public Sector Tendering event. Our NEPO Supplier Partnership Programme has been developed to support local and regional suppliers to win contracts with the public sector. With the changes to public procurement coming next year this support is more important than ever. We’re delighted to be working with Executive Compass to ensure that regional suppliers have the best possible opportunity to win contracts.”

Matthew Walker, technical director of NEPO’s delivery partner Executive Compass, said: “We have worked closely with NEPO to develop their Supplier Partnership Programme to ensure the right support is provided at the right time to help suppliers find, bid for and win public sector contracts. We have a great programme to look forward to, and I would encourage any supplier from the North East and Tees Valley who isn’t already working with the public sector – or who wants to improve their tendering strategy – to get involved.”

The NEPO Supplier Partnership Programme is committed to supporting local and regional suppliers find, bid for and win public sector contracts. If you’re a North East supplier ready to supply the public sector, the NEPO Supplier Partnership Programme is for you!

Upcoming events include Bid Writing Masterclasses, Social Value, regular surgeries and other topical webinars. Find out more on our website or subscribe to our newsletter to receive regular updates on the programme.
