Schools and academies in receipt of government grants through the Salix scheme are able to use NEPRO³ to appoint professional services.

NEPRO³ supports schools and academies with Salix funding

NEPRO³, a nationally available solution for the appointment of specialist professional services, can support organisations who have been awarded Salix funding grants by offering a fast and fully compliant route to market.

Salix funding, in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), offers 100% interest-free government grants to schools and academies to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, lower energy bills and address building issues with a significant condition improvement need.

Developed by NEPO and managed by Bloom, NEPRO³ delivers the following benefits:

  • A quick route to market: Ensures projects are delivered quickly and efficiently to meet the scheme’s fast-approaching deadlines.
  • A fully managed service: Procurement processes are fully managed throughout the entire project lifecycle, with the ability to provide existing project specification templates.
  • A dynamic supply chain: Access to a shortlist of pre-accredited service suppliers including assessors, designers, consultants, energy efficiency consultants, surveyors and quantity surveyors.
  • Significant cost savings

Schools and academies using Bloom and the NEPRO³ solution save on average between 11% and 19% against budget.
