Team of the Year
Teamworking is pivotal to the success of public procurement, and the Procurement Team of the Year Award recognises the power and potential of a focused and unified approach to procurement. Teams can be virtual as well as single-site teams; but they must comprise individuals working towards the same objective or goal. Above all, this Award recognises leadership, communication, innovation, collaboration, employee development and a collective team ethic and approach to deliver excellence in public services.
Recognition is given based on the accomplishments of the team in relation to its size and the complexity of its procurement activities.
A GO Awards submission in this category must reflect activity by the team or organisation involved during the period January 2019 to June 2020.
Open to public or third sector organisations within local and central government, health and social care, housing, education and all other sectors. A public or third sector team can also include a private sector organisation which has contributed to the initiative.
