Section II: Object
NEPO502 Office Supplies
NEPO seeks to establish a framework agreement for the provision of office supplies. Included within the scope of the framework agreement are general office supplies and electronic office consumables, divided into the following two lots:
Lot 1: General Office Supplies
Lot 2: Electronic Office Consumables
The framework agreement will be made available to all Members and Associate Members of NEPO including local authorities and other contracting authorities located in the United Kingdom.
A list of Members of NEPO is available here https://www.nepo.org/about and a list of Associate Members is available here https://www.nepo.org/associate-membership/list.
General Office Supplies
NEPO are using an open procedure for the procurement of this framework agreement. The framework agreement will consist of two lots. Suppliers will be evaluated in accordance with the award criteria contained within the invitation to tender documents.
The most economically advantageous tenderer for each lot will be awarded onto the framework agreement. It is intended that a maximum of four suppliers will be appointed to the framework agreement. Suppliers will be ranked and the second ranked supplier in each lot will only be required if the first ranked supplier cannot fulfil any of the contract requirements, at any stage during the Framework Agreement, due to service deliver and/or capacity failure.
The opportunity can be accessed via the NEPO eTender system. Suppliers wishing to be considered for this Framework must register their expression of interest and submit a tender through the NEPO eTender System. If not already registered, candidates should register on the NEPO eTender system at https://procontract.due-north.com/register. Tenders must be submitted using the link above. Tenders submitted via post or email methods will not be accepted. If you require time-critical assistance on submitting your tender please contact the system support team on 0330 0050352. For non time-critical issues, such as passwords, general account queries and location of information, etc., please contact Proactis Supplier Support Helpdesk Ticketing System(http://proactis.kayako.com/) and select ProContract V3 support. You will then need to log in or submit a ticket to register your issue. Alternatively, you can email ProContractSuppliers@proactis.com.

NEPO does not give any guarantee and/or warrant the actual value of orders (if any) which will be placed with the successful suppliers by any contracting authority using the framework agreement pursuant to this process and accepts no liability thereof.
This framework agreement will be a direct replacement for the current NEPO502 Office Supplies Framework Agreement which is due to expire 31 January 2021. It is anticipated that this framework agreement will be subject to future renewals.
The framework agreement will be for a period of 36 months with an option to extend for a further 1 x 12 month period.
