Best Contract Delivery – Private Sector / Supported Business


The effective delivery of public contracts is dependent on a robust, vibrant and innovative supply chain. The Best Contract Delivery Award for Supported Businesses and Private Sector Organisations recognises the critical role that contractors play in ensuring end-user expectations are met – or, even better, exceeded – whilst paying heed to issues such as efficiency and sustainability. The focus is on innovation in the works, supply or service delivery, the engagement with end users and the positive impact the applicant has delivered.

Entries must have the support of a public or third sector body on whose behalf the organisation has delivered the contract. Additional credit will be given to entries that provide evidence from end users of how the contract has positively impacted upon them.

A GO Awards submission in this category must cover activity during the period January 2019 to June 2020.

The contract or initiative related to the submission must have commenced during this period to be eligible.
