KEY INFORMATION Open (The complete technology solution for your e-Procurement)

STATUS - Active

Open is the new fully integrated e-procurement solution, designed and developed by NEPO and powered by AWS.

Open is a streamlined system that simplifies the carrying out of public sector procurement in a compliant way, delivering value to both buyers and suppliers.

Why use Open?

From pre-procurement activity through to contract management, data is the driver of Open, providing a single source of truth for buyers and asking for information from suppliers just once. Enriched by third party sources, we will continually develop the solution to meet the needs of the users, remaining flexible and ensuring value for money.

The solution will provide greater insights, meaningful and reliable data, improved visibility and transparency, enhanced stakeholder engagement and unlock potential benefits across commissioning and procurement for all stakeholders.   

When will Open be ready?

Download the Open timeline. Please note dates are indicative and subject to change.

It is anticipated that implementation across NEPO and NEPO Member Authorities will be phased following the Go-live date.

We are working closely with buyers and contracted suppliers in preparation for Open, and we will be in regular communication to ensure all stakeholders are aware of the changes and any action required of them in preparation.

We have developed a dedicated Open Hub for suppliers to easily access various training materials and resources. Visit the Open Hub website to learn more. 

For any general enquiries, please feel free to contact us at open@nepo.org.
