Tell us why you are a Chamber member
We are committed to the North East. Our mission is to simplify the procurement process and assist public sector organisations to work with the very best suppliers.
Working with the Chamber will enable us to network and engage with North East organisations. We want to partner with local suppliers and see them win work that builds their businesses both inside and outside of the North East region.
We have a strong commitment to social value. We actively encourage suppliers tendering for projects to demonstrate how they will add social value and support local objectives. We maximise social value by supporting not-for-profit organisations to secure public sector business; facilitated through our ‘3rd Sector Provider Community’. Working with the Chamber will give us a platform which will help us to create social value within the region and help North East businesses to recognise its worth.
