Extended procurement partnership to bring extra benefits to public sector

The North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) and The Procurement Partnership Limited (TPPL) have extended their partnership for a further five years, enhancing the vehicle purchasing power available to public sector members.

The partnership provides NEPO’s member authorities and associate members with a compliant route on purchasing and leasing vehicles

The partnership was originally launched in 2017 to provide NEPO’s member authorities and associate members with a compliant route on purchasing and leasing vehicles, ranging from cars to commercial and specialist vehicles; over the last three years members have accessed the full range of fleet solutions to place over 650  orders, covering over 1,500  vehicles with a total investment exceeding £80m.

Benefits of the tie-up include access to a wide range of key suppliers, increased competition delivering more competitive pricing and additional support provided by TPPL including technical and market knowledge.

TPPL has also been working closely with suppliers appointed to solutions to assess their ability to bid on procurements during the pandemic.

James Brennan, managing director at TPPL, said: “The relationship has enabled TPPL to enhance the purchasing power available to our wider membership. As a result of our collaboration with NEPO we have made a number of market leading procurement solutions available to public sector organisations across the UK. We will continue to provide public sector organisations with guidance in matching their requirements to the appropriate TPPL solution, and providing comprehensive support throughout the procurement process.”
