We are NEPRO

NEPRO is an innovative private limited company that sources, appoints and manages consultancy and specialist professional service suppliers for the UK public sector.  We are proud delivery partner to the North East Procurement Organisation for the neutral vendor framework for specialist professional services.

As supply chain specialists, our philosophy is underpinned by an outcome-focused approach to procurement.   We focus on driving value for money by giving contracting authorities the best choice of large and small suppliers in a quick, compliant and collaborative way.

The neutral vendor model provides an efficient route to market for suppliers of all sizes. With NEPRO, large and small consultancy suppliers can access significant public sector contracts without the need for complex tender responses. This approach supports the growth of the use of SME suppliers; a stated objective of the Government.  Get in touch and see what NEPRO can do for you. We’re ready to help.

Managing Director

Rob Levene

I’m Managing Director of NEPRO. I passionately believe that there’s a better way for the public sector to work with its suppliers. That’s because I understand the business of management consultancy.

I’ve worked with leaders in many sectors, including consultancy. I understood their challenges when seeking short term, expert advice in an efficient way. I saw an incredible opportunity to apply good practice in management consultancy procurement to the public sector. It’s a win-win for clients who benefit from my team’s supply chain expertise and an efficient route to market for suppliers of consultancy services of all sizes, across the UK.

At NEPRO, we truly believe that we add value by encouraging best practice, removing barriers to entry and supporting collaboration through a compliant route. It’s all available for you today. I’d love to talk to you to show how the NEPRO approach can help you. Just get in touch.
