Overview

Recognising the best in public procurement.

Following the postponement of the highly anticipated GO Awards Wales in March, The GO Awards Wales took place on the afternoon of the 19th June 2020 and were the first ever procurement Awards to be held entirely online. The event was virtual – but the outstanding Awards entries and the stories behind them are very real.

Even before COVID-19, public 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 mattered now more than ever. It was 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.

Hosted by Magician Paul Martin and Officially Welcomed by Rebecca Evans, Minister for Finance and Trefnydd, this year the GO Awards Wales were delighted to announce 10 Highly Commended Awards, 9 Winners and 1 Outstanding GO Excellence Wales Winner, across our ten categories.
