Introducing Open

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

NEPO Portal

Register or login to the NEPO Portal to access ALL regional opportunities published by the twelve North East local authorities and Nexus.

(The twelve North East local authorities are Darlington Borough Council, Durham County Council, Gateshead Council, Hartlepool Borough Council, Middlesbrough Borough Council, Newcastle City Council, North Tyneside Council, Northumberland County Council, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, South Tyneside Council, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, Sunderland City Council)


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

Open will be fully adopted on a phased roll-out by North East local authorities during 2023. For the time being this means that only NEPO will be using Open to advertise tendering opportunities.

Below is a pipeline of upcoming opportunities from NEPO that will be published on Open in 2023. We recommend that you register an account to ensure you are notified of these future opportunities:

  • NEPO425 Volume Cut Sized Copier Paper & Production/Specialist Paper
  • NEPO513 Legal Services
  • NEPO209 Highway Technical Surveys
  • NEPO514 Training
  • NEPO234 Asbestos Management
  • NEPO426 ESG Delivery Partner
