NEPRO³ recommended in new DfE guidance for schools 

We’re pleased to share that NEPRO³ has been recommended in the latest Department for Education (DfE) guidance for estate management.

The DfE Good Estate Management for Schools (GEMS) is an online resource aimed at organisations responsible for managing and overseeing school estates, helping to ensure a cost-effective, safe and sustainable environment. The guidance outlines the policies, processes and documents that schools, academies and multi-academy trusts should consider when managing their estates, and also signposts procurement routes for appointing goods and services relating to estate management. The latest update of the guidance has singled out NEPRO³ as the preferred route for educational settings to appoint and manage specialist professional services and consultancy.

Delivered exclusively by Bloom, NEPRO ³ is an OJEU-compliant procurement framework that allows the UK public sector to buy and manage specialist professional services from a choice of regional and national suppliers. Through this cost-effective and fully compliant route, buyers can access a pre-accredited supply chain to find the right solution to suit their specific needs and are fully supported by Bloom throughout the process, from specification development through to appointment and delivery.

Using NEPRO³, the Bloom team have successfully supported schools and academies with a wide range of facilities management and construction-related specialist professional services projects. As the experts in public sector procurement, we can take care of everything our customers need to deliver projects on time and within budget, every time.

With a proven track record in the education sector, we understand the unique challenges schools and academies face and how we can work together to solve them. Every supplier we onboard goes through a robust and detailed accreditation process, giving school buyers the cast-iron assurance that’s at the heart of our service. All contractual obligations are defined and agreed upfront to deliver full transparency and complete peace of mind every step of the way.

Being recognised by the DfE is testament to our expertise within the sector and we look forward to supporting more schools and academies with their upcoming projects.
