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?

Eventually all Suppliers who wish to do business with the NCI Agency will need a Neo account. However, in order to facilitate a smooth transition to the new tool, the Agency has adopted a phased and controlled approach to Neo roll-out. The full transition to Neo will take place by the end of 2023. Until then, selected Business Opportunities will be incrementally performed in Neo and all Suppliers who wish to partake in those competitions will be invited to register to Neo.

Check the Notifications of Intent (NOIs) of business opportunities to determine if they are being competed in Neo.
