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

STATUS - In Development

NEPO and its Member Authorities are working in partnership to deliver a fully integrated and streamlined technology solution to support the commissioning and procurement cycle. 

The requirement is for a robust, data-led technology solution which provides collaborative benefits, delivers increased efficiencies and consistency, eradicates duplication and ensures maximum value is derived for all stakeholders. 

 

This ambitious project has been named Open, and will aim to deliver the next generation of digital procurement tools. Open will enable the following areas to be digitised while ensuring a flow of data across all areas:

  • Pre-procurement 
  • Strategic Spend Analysis 
  • E-tendering 
  • Contract Register 
  • Contract Management 
  • Rebate collection 
  • Reporting capabilities 

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.   

Current status: Between February and May 2020, NEPO will work with key stakeholders to establish the ‘Minimum Viable Product’ (MVP) to be used as the scope and specification for the resulting procurement.  Procurement activity will then take place from June 2020, and will conclude in September 2020.  The appointed supplier will then progress the system build, with an April 2021 go-live date. (These timescales are indicative).
