Under this new partnership, NEPO’s members will be able to access YPO’s ICT solutions, including the following:
- Hardware and software
- Data centres, maintenance, security and cloud hosting services
- Networking and telecommunications
- ICT managed service
- Electronic kitchen management, payment and communication
Additional procurement solutions will be added in 2022, including website design, software applications for local authorities, and AI automation.
Joanne Peacock, Procurement Manager at NEPO, recently said:
“We are delighted to be working with YPO to extend the range of procurement solutions available to NEPO’s members. Our partnership will simplify the procurement approach, offering choice and value. SMEs account for 68% of suppliers across the ICT frameworks, which aligns with NEPO’s commitment to maximising opportunities for smaller businesses. Working together we will continue to drive positive outcomes for members, end-users and the supply chain.”

“This collaboration represents a positive step for the wider public sector.
