The Collaborative Procurement Performance Report 2021/22 is now available to download.

The annual report sets out how NEPO's collaborative approach has ensured that public sector procurement delivers positive outcomes for North East local authorities, the wider public sector and the communities we serve.

Councillor Ed Malcolm, Chair of the Collaborative Procurement Sub-Committee, recently said:

“The worldwide energy crisis, Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, and the pandemic recovery represent significant challenges for all of us. There is uncertainty and instability, however, as this report demonstrates, the strength of collaboration in the region has helped us navigate a challenging year.”

Nicola Shelley, Managing Director at NEPO, added:

“I’m incredibly proud of how NEPO and the twelve North East local authorities have worked in partnership to deliver for our stakeholders. At the start of the year we launched our three-year strategy setting out how public sector procurement can act as an enabler for economic growth and drive positive change. The annual report demonstrates that this approach can deliver tangible results. We look forward to building on this strong foundation and delivering even more for our stakeholders.”
