Selling to the Council

Opportunities for tender

The Council advertises tender opportunities on the:

  • NEPO (North East Procurement Organisation) portal
  • Government's Contract Finder site (opportunities over £25,000 in value)

The NEPO portal is used by all 12 North East Councils and other North East public sector bodies, to run their tendering and quotation processes.

Suppliers who are interested in doing business with the Council should register their business at NEPO (North East Purchasing Organisation).

Registering on the portal

Registering on the portal means you will see and be notified of opportunities.

It doesn't mean you will be invited to tender.

Futher evaluation may be needed, depending on the nature and value of the opportunity.
