NEPA Framework: Final Extension invoked!!
NEUPC is pleased to confirm that consultation with the National Working Party for the National Education Printers Agreement (NEPA) has resulted in the decision to formally invoke the final 12 month extension period available, and the agreement expiry date is now 16th October 2015.
The decision to invoke the extension at this time is intended to extend a vote of confidence to the supply chain, and also encourage greater investment by the supply chain to longer term strategy. Institutions can be confident that their known programmes of complex further competitions for MPS will be completed within the duration of the framework.
NEUPC is in the process of confirming the extension with all supply parties. The NEUPC and NEPA websites, and also GeM will be updated accordingly over the coming weeks. For further details please contact [email protected]
