Individual Achievement of the Year
The profile of public procurement has never been higher, with Brexit, COVID-19 and the economic recovery all bringing greater focus and demand for better levels of performance, effectiveness, innovation and efficiency.
The new Individual Achievement of the Year Award recognises those individuals who have fully embraced this challenge, enhancing the delivery of procurement to provide outstanding public services.
This category is not solely focused on the tangible benefits that can be derived from an outstanding procurement, but also focuses on the role that an individual has performed in developing change, or in guiding strategic decisions and delivering savings and efficiency through procurement.
This Award is to recognise those individuals who have gone above and beyond to deliver better outcomes through procurement, whether they are new to the profession or have many years of experience in delivering public contracts.
A GO Awards submission in this category must reflect activity by an individual during the period January 2020 to October 2021.
