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.
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.
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 highly commended and winning organisations will be announced online on the afternoon of the 6th November 2020. Winning organisations will gain automatic finalist status at the UK National GO Awards 2020/21 where they will compete against other winners from across the UK.
