NEPO Highly Commended at the National GO Awards
NEPO has been Highly Commended in the “Procurement Project of the Year (above £20M) – Local Government and Consortia” category at the National GO Awards held on 30 April 2019.
The award entry focussed on how NEPO used its expert knowledge and a strong collaborative approach to procure an Electricity solution that delivers savings, secures social value benefits and meets public sector requirements.
Following a procurement process that featured comprehensive market engagement, and consultation with a diverse range of customers, NEPO301 Electricity was awarded to EDF Energy. A rigorous implementation programme followed, to ensure a smooth transition for existing customers.
The solution is available for use by the wider public sector via NEPO’s free of charge associate membership scheme. Click here to find out more about NEPO301 Electricity.
Nicola Shelley, Managing Director at NEPO, yesterday said:
“We are delighted to have been recognised in these highly regarded national awards, especially given the outstanding competition that we faced. This project demonstrates how NEPO and its Member Authorities work collaboratively to deliver for the public sector.”
The Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards reward excellence and achievement in this multi billion-pound sector and for the past 19 years have been the benchmark by which progress in commissioning, procurement and public service delivery has been measured. The GO Awards showcase the very best that public sector procurement has to offer as a career, as a market sector and, most importantly, as a means of delivering more efficient and effective public services.
