It’s all taken care of by Bloom because they are the link between buyers and suppliers.

Bloom was established in 2012 as the UK’s exclusive operator of the NEPRO³ professional services solution, on behalf of NEPO (North East Procurement Organisation). Their business is now the trusted partner to over 340 public sector buyers and over 6,500 supplier organisations.

As operators of a neutral vendor solution, Blooms's interests are only ever in the successful delivery of your projects. Being fully transparent in their processes allows their people to concentrate on what matters most – you, your projects and their assured delivery.
