Procurement Project of the Year (sub-£20m value)


The GO Procurement Project of the Year Award is intended to recognise outstanding and successful procurement delivery within the public sector marketplace.

This award is designed to recognise the success of smaller contracting authorities in delivering projects below £20 million in value. Key to success in this category is the structure of the procedure, the deliverables achieved, the user outcomes and benefits delivered as well as savings banked and efficiencies achieved.

Projects can encompass goods, works or services or any mix of these, but the key requirement will be to show that the outcomes achieved went beyond anything previously delivered through procurement by the organisation applying.



A GO Awards submission in this category must cover activity during the period April 2017 to April 2019.

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


Open to

Public sector bodies.
