Procurement opportunities

This page provides information on how suppliers and organisations can bid for Sunderland City Council Opportunities.

The NEPO Portal is used by Sunderland City Council for quotation and tender opportunities.

In addition to Sunderland City Council the NEPO Portal is also used by the other North East authorities to publish own opportunities.

If you are interesting in bidding for work with Sunderland City Council is it very important that you register on the NEPO Portal.

The NEPO Portal is free to register for all suppliers and organisations, regardless of location. When an organisation registers on the site they can select a number of categories of interest. Whenever a tender is advertised within a category of interest an email notification will then be issued to the organisations.

In addition to the email notifications suppliers and organisations can also search and express interest in tender opportunities which are published on the site by Sunderland City Council.

When a quotation is raised on the NEPO Portal three organisations are selected randomly by the system and invited to quote. There is also the option to invite additional organisations to quote if they have previously demonstrated value for money.
