Neo - a new era for NCI Agency eProcurement
The NCI Agency has launched a new online procurement tool called Neo in 2022. The move to Neo eProcurement is part of a wider Agency effort to boost collaboration with the private sector by promoting visibility into past, current and upcoming business opportunities, aiming for faster competition cycles, contract awards and account management.
Who needs a Neo account?
From January 2024 all business with the Agency will be performed through Neo eProcurement.
All suppliers who wish to do business with the Agency must request a Neo account.
