We are absolutely thrilled at this recognition as the level of competition for this year’s awards has been extremely high, and although we won’t find out if we are winners until 26 February, achieving finalist status is a great commendation for our procurement activity.
The National GO Awards 2015/16 will be held on 26 February at The Midland Hotel in Manchester.
Now in their 15th year, the National GO Awards are the benchmark by which progress in this multibillion-pound sector has been measured.
“The GO Awards are now in their 15th year and it could be wrong to expect the level of interest to increase year on year. But, as you will see from this year’s chosen finalists, the profile of the entries has not only raised the bar once again, it’s set a benchmark that all those involved in public procurement within the UK should acknowledge, appreciate and strive for.
“This is our biggest awards ever! It had to be; the standard this year was so high that the judges struggled to make the finalists’ shortlist. But they have and the competition for each category is fierce. Thank you to everyone who entered – procurement in the UK is in a good place.”
Grahame Steed, Government Opportunities Managing Editor and Lead Judge, National GO Awards 2015/16
