Recognising Excellence in Public Procurement and the Supply Chain
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 most recently Northern Ireland as well as the cumulative UK National GO Awards.
Even before COVID-19, procurement in Wales 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 Wales 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 Wales’ citizens.
This year, for the first time, the GO Awards Wales will take place online. Using groundbreaking interactive technology, we will bring the GO Awards directly to you, allowing you to view the ceremony from a location of your choice. The virtual GO Awards will give you a rare opportunity to come together with your peers, colleagues and the wider procurement community and recognise the fantastic job individuals and organisations have done during and throughout the current COVID-19 pandemic. The event will be virtual – but the outstanding Awards entries and the stories behind them are very real.
Entry for the GO Awards Wales 2020/21 will open soon.

Absolutely over the moon. It has been a magnificent project to be involved with, the success of which is really down to collaboration and teamwork – team Wales’ approach to it – without which we wouldn’t be able to deliver.
It’s a testament to the hard work that’s gone on with shared services procurement, project management, supply chain, stores and logistics to be able to put a system in place for the district nurses… which has allowed them to deliver improved services for their patients.
