Recognising the best in public procurement.
Since 2003, the GO Excellence in Public Procurement Awards have showcased those organisations leading the way in public procurement best practice across all UK nations: Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as the cumulative UK National GO Awards.
The GO Awards Scotland 2020/21 set out to recognise the achievement and successes of procurement teams from all aspects of the public, private and third sector organisations.
Even before COVID-19, public procurement in Scotland was rapidly evolving as part of its transformation from back-office function to strategic player. Now, against the backdrop of a global pandemic, the stakes are even higher. Procurement is front page news and, as the crisis evolves into something resembling normality, public service delivery will be at the forefront of economic recovery.
That’s why the GO Awards Scotland matter now more than ever. It’s time to recognise the tireless work and endeavour that underpins the delivery of critical services; to showcase the innovation and ingenuity that ensures public spend creates lasting social and economic benefit; and to mark the extensive collaborations and partnerships that exist across supply chains: whether to combat COVID-19 or deliver on the many other expectations of Scotland’s citizens.

It’s been a brilliant evening dedicated to the hard work that people put into procurement, and proves that it is a valued aspect in the public sector.
It’s been fascinating to see so many amazing organisations and all the amazing collaborations and capability across Scotland, all together in one room. We work hard all year round and it’s great to come together and celebrate.
