Procurement Leadership of the Year
The profile of public procurement is on the rise, and with it comes the demand for even higher levels of performance, effectiveness, innovation, efficiency and leadership.
The GO Procurement Leadership of the Year Award recognises those organisations that have fully embraced this challenge, and which are placing procurement at the front and centre of their strategy for the delivery of outstanding public services.
This category isn’t solely focused on the tangible benefits that can be derived from an outstanding procurement strategy. The role of procurement within the organisation, in developing change across the business or in guiding strategic decisions and delivering savings and efficiencies through procurement policy, is a key element in this Award.
This award also recognises organisations that have woven procurement into the fabric of their everyday existence – with buy-in and proactive support from across all levels.
A GO Awards submission in this category must reflect activity by the team or organisation involved during the period April 2017 to April 2019.
