CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE IN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT

GO Awards Wales 2017/18 – Winners

The Winners and Highly Commended entrants for the Welsh Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2017/18 were announced at a glittering black-tie ceremony at the Mercure Hotel, Cardiff on Thursday 9th November 2017.

Hosted by TV presenter Mai Davies, the Awards were a glittering finale to Wales’ Festival of Procurement, which kicked off earlier in the day at Procurex Wales, Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff.

With submissions whittled down to just under 40 finalists and the ceremony sold out in advance, this really was the hottest ticket in procurement and saw some fantastic organisations go head to head to win a coveted, new for 2017, GO Awards trophy.

You can view all the finalists here and the judging panel here. Please see the full Winners and Highly Commended recipients below.
