Why Enter

The GO Awards Scotland recognise those organisations and teams that are making a real difference within public sector procurement.

Entering the GO Awards Scotland is your organisation’s chance to showcase your procurement project, team or initiative to your peers and demonstrate why your procurement team is one of the best in Scotland. If your organisation’s procurement projects are changing lives, exploring new ground or setting a standard for others to follow, then make sure the procurement world knows!

All GO Awards entries are judged by a panel of industry experts which has in the past included representatives from Scottish Government and Scotland Excel, among many others.

Why not share your story and let everyone know why Scotland is leading the world in best practice procurement?

All GO Awards Scotland winners will gain automatic finalist status at the UK National GO Awards 2020/21 where they will compete against other winners from across the UK.
