North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO)

About NEPO

The North East Procurement Organisation was established in 1976 and functions to provide the collaborative public sector procurement throughout the North East, by aggregating contractual requirements and pooling purchasing knowledge and expertise.

NEPO is governed by a Joint Committee comprising members from the 11 North East Local Authorities, including Redcar & Cleveland.

NEPO aims to obtain the best value solutions on commonly purchased goods and services, deliver savings thereby making a substantial contribution to local government efficiency targets, and save time and effort by accessing established, compliant framework agreements.

NEPO offers robust, legally compliant procurement vehicles for the public sector that are flexible and meet real commercial needs.
