All entries were recently reviewed by a panel of eight judges made up of experts in Scottish and UK procurement including Alastair Merrill, Director, Procurement and Commercial, at the Scottish Government and John F McClelland CBE, author of The McClelland Report, a review of public sector procurement in Scotland.

The awards were presented to the well-deserving Winners and Highly Commended entrants at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel.

Grahame Steed, Managing Editor of GO and Lead Judge, said of the Awards: “Tonight’s Awards demonstrated again just how much the quality of procurement has improved in Scotland over the years. What was once seen as a pioneering initiative a few years ago, is now industry standard across the sector.

I always say that reaching finalist status is a fantastic achievement itself, but this year organisations had to really raise their game to reach that status and the Winners and Highly Commended have raised the benchmark yet again. Well done!”
