Thank you to all who showed an interest in the UK National Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2018/19.
As one of the leading countries in the world for best practice procurement, as you would expect the standard of the submissions this year has again raised the bar! So, thank you! Well done to everyone who entered and congratulations to those who have reached the finalist stage from the many entries into the UK National GO Awards.
We are now delighted to reveal that the finalists in each category have been decided. All the entries were recently reviewed by a panel of judges made up of experts in UK procurement including David Smith, Former Commercial Director and Judging Panel Chairman, DWP; Elizabeth Welton, Head of Shared Procurement Service, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and Coventry City Council and Tina Holland, Programme Manager, Local Government Association. All members of this year’s judging panel can be viewed here.
In addition, all finalists are invited to attend a special GO Awards finalists’ presentation at the Procurex England North 2018 event, in advance of the Gala Dinner. As a finalist, you will receive a complimentary lunch / drinks reception and have the opportunity to meet and celebrate your success with other finalists, in the build-up to the main event. Attendance at the finalists’ presentation also gives you free access to the Procurex England North 2018, which features the inaugural CCS Showcase, to be hosted by Crown Commercial Service.
