Introducing Open

The new e-procurement platform from NEPO and North East local authorities

Looking for the NEPO Portal?

You can still register, login and bid for opportunities on the NEPO Portal until these are transferred to Open over the coming months.

Please note: All regional tendering opportunities published by NEPO and the twelve North East local authorities will continue to be advertised on the NEPO Portal until the full migration concludes next year.

Introducing Open

Open is the new e-procurement platform launched by NEPO and the North East local authorities.

Open will replace the NEPO Portal as the place to do business with NEPO and the twelve North East local authorities.

NEPO will be the first public sector organisation to use Open to run a competitive opportunity. Following a phased implementation during 2023, all North East local authorities will be using Open to buy goods, works and services.

Open will be adopted on a phased roll-out during 2023, however, we recommend that you register to ensure you are notified of relevant opportunities.
