STATUS - Expiring (New solution in development)

The solution offers all eligible public sector organisations a compliant and efficient way to manage their temporary agency worker requirements. This is a sole supplier solution whereby Geometric Results Inc (GRI - formerly known as de Poel Managed Services Limited) operate as a neutral vendor managed service.

The benefits of using a vendor neutral model include:

• Single point of contact for the acquisition of temporary workers
• Perpetual enrolment mechanism for buyers to access a wide and diverse supply chain which has undergone extensive quality and performance checks during the accreditation procedures
• Significant reduction in 'maverick' spend found in traditional framework arrangements.
• A 'One Stop Shop' system (e-tips) to automate the end-to-end process, from inputting of requirements to managing of timesheets and payment of invoices.
• The online system provides a streamlined way of working which cuts down administrative and transactional requirements.

The solution experienced a total throughput of over £30 million in the first year of trading. Contracting authorities also benefitted from a combined saving of over £1.25M, based on historical usage and data. Both figures are predicted to increase significantly throughout the remaining term as the solution is adopted by an increasing number of NEPO members.

In 2016 the solution scooped the National Outsourcing Association's (NOA) prestigious award for Excellence in Business Process Outsourcing (Public Sector), which serves as further testament to the success of the arrangement.

The new solution has been procured and will commence with effect from 1 November 2019. Click here to read more.
