NEPO has established a partnership with YPO to offer its members access to a wide range of ICT procurement solutions.
NEPO and YPO have a shared ambition to provide the public sector with procurement solutions that deliver value and drive innovation. 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, 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.”
Sarah Sesum, Strategic Procurement Manager at YPO added:
“This collaboration represents a positive step for the wider public sector. Our ICT solutions aim to simplify the procurement journey, and offer flexibility to appoint suppliers through further competition or direct award. Our dedicated ICT team are on hand to offer technical advice and support throughout the procurement process. We look forward to working with NEPO and their members to unlock these benefits.”
