Meetings will take place on the 9.1.2018 and 11.1.2018. 3 appointments per day will be made available and secured on a first come first served basis. Appointments are for a maximum of 120 minutes and limited to 4 attendees per supplier.

NEPO is seeking to establish a Framework Contract, with a sole supplier, for the provision of a Managed Service for Temporary Agency Resourcing. The solution will provide for all types of temporary agency resource and across a number of supply categories on behalf of NEPO Members and NEPO Associate Members.
The existing Framework Contract involves a sole supplier arrangement for a Vendor Neutral Managed Service for Temporary Agency Resource. It is anticipated the future iteration will also operate as a Vendor Neutral offering. NEPO will also seek to understand alternative approaches as part of the Market Consultation meetings referenced above.
The estimated value included in this prior information notice is based on current volumes per annum, extrapolated across a 48 month period. The value may however be subject to change on the basis that the resulting Framework Contract is expected to be available for use by all UK wider public sector organisations.
Attendance to the Market Consultation meetings is optional and does not provide advantage to any future related procurement opportunity and/or constitute as a supplier's intention to tender. Suppliers should be capable of delivering the scope of services and manage the estimated volumes detailed above. NEPO reserve the right to seek assurances from interested suppliers prior to allocating a place.
