Councilor Veronica Dunn (Newcastle City Council), Collaborative Procurement Sub-Committee Chair, said:
“NEPRO has been widely adopted across the UK public sector and continues to grow from strength to strength, delivering choice and value for money to the sector. I am delighted that the innovation and achievements reflected in our award entry have been recognised alongside our fellow local government finalists.”
Steven Sinclair, Head of Procurement at NEPO, said:

Being shortlisted gives NEPO the opportunity to showcase our achievements and share learning across the wider public sector.”
