Best Service – Micro and Small Businesses and Third Sector Organisations
The effective delivery of public services is dependent on a robust, vibrant and innovative supply chain. The GO Best Service Award for Micro and Small Businesses and Third Sector Organisations recognises the critical part that they play in ensuring end user expectations are met, or, even better, exceeded – while paying heed to issues such as efficiency and sustainability. The focus is on innovation in product and service delivery, engagement with end users and the positive impact of the service provided, rather than the size of the organisations delivering it.
Entries must have the support of the public or third sector body on whose behalf the organisation has delivered the service. Additional credit will be given to entries that provide evidence from end users of how the service has impacted upon them.
A GO Awards submission in this category must cover activity during the period April 2017 to April 2019. The contract or initiative related to the submission must have commenced during this period to be eligible.
This category is open to Micro and Small businesses (employing fewer than 50 employees or their full time equivalent and with an annual turnover or balance sheet no greater than £10 million) or third sector organisations endorsed by a public or third sector client, or by a private sector client acting as a prime contractor.
