“ Founded in 2012, we’ve delivered around 3,000 projects to date, through a pre-accredited, dynamic supply chain, 70% of which are small businesses.”
Bloom delivers the Nepro solution, a compliant neutral vendor approach for the procurement of professional services for the public sector. Founded in 2012, we’ve delivered around 3,000 projects to date, through a pre-accredited, dynamic supply chain, 70% of which are small businesses.
We’re trusted by buying organisations across the public sector to deliver professional services projects in 19 categories. Buyers can run mini competitions with our supplier community or directly appoint in a compliant way.
We start with a focus on outcomes, helping buyers build a specification that delivers best value for the public purse. Bloom then provides delivery assurance so that the project is delivered on time, working with the supplier and managing all payment and invoicing. Our suppliers benefit from an efficient and cost-effective route to market, for which they pay a 5% management fee to Bloom.

The pilot in 2014 showed that the NEPRO solution could assist the Council to achieve our aims of supporting local business while freeing up valuable time for us to concentrate on high value strategic projects.
Working with Bloom to access the NEPRO solution has ensured we realise all the expected benefits from a neutral vendor approach in procuring and managing specialist professional services. They are a true partner and are continually looking to improve the way we work and ultimately the services provided by the suppliers.
Bloom was essential in the recent hiring of a consultant for a governance project within oneSource. Through the NEPRO solution, I was able to hire a consultant within 2 weeks of posting my project requirements. I was provided with proposals from a range of experienced and relevant suppliers and received valued support from Bloom throughout the process.
Working with Bloom means we get access to the best choice of small and large suppliers, especially supporting local Cornish Small and Medium Enterprises suppliers. Working with a dynamic and competitive supply chain gives us flexibility, greater supplier choice and access to the latest thinking. Overall that delivers better value for money for the tax payer.
I chose to work with Bloom as I liked the idea of outcome-based projects. It’s so much more efficient, as it’s a compliant process without the need to go through the OJEU process as it’s still competitive. Bloom has many suppliers already available but we can add suppliers whenever we want. Having someone who can help by providing a second opinion; a neutral point of view has been valuable to us.
