The GO Awards showcase the very best that public sector procurement has to offer – as a career, as a market sector and, most importantly, as a means of delivering more efficient and effective public services.
Entering the GO Awards costs nothing, but winning – or even becoming a finalist – has tremendous value. That value extends far beyond the moment when one of the unique GO Awards trophies is presented to a successful entrant in front of hundreds of the UK’s leading procurement practitioners at a special ceremony. Gaining recognition as a GO Awards winner provides a lasting positive impression for your organisation – whether buyer or supplier – and on the individuals and teams who work for it. In these challenging times, such kudos goes a long way.
Receiving a GO Award is the ultimate accolade within the public procurement arena and the awards are open to all public, private and third sector organisations across the UK.
The National GO Awards 2016/17 will return in 2016, in the meantime, click here to view the Winners and Highly Commended from the 2015/16 ceremony, which took place on Thursday 26 February at The Midland Hotel in Manchester.
“We are speechless to win and very chuffed; we have come a long way in a very short time. It is great to have all our hard work gratified by this Award; it shows that a council as small and remote as ours can demonstrate innovative procurement. We look forward to passing the benefits of our services on to the people of the Western Isles.”
