UK procurement elite honoured at awards ceremony

Wednesday March 14th, 2012

Procurement organisations and public sector suppliers across the country have been honoured for outstanding achievement at the National Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2012/13.

The National GO Awards recognise and reward excellence and achievement in this multibillion-pound sector and for the past ten years have been the benchmark by which progress in commissioning, procurement and public service delivery has been measured.

Organised by procurement specialists BiP Solutions, the National GO Awards are the only awards dedicated to public procurement in the UK. Winners were announced at a ceremony held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on the evening of the first day of the Procurex National 2012 exhibition.

Winners included Transport for London, who won the GO Sustainability or Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year Award, and the East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub, who scooped the GO Procurement Innovation or Initiative of the Year Award (Health and Social Care Organisations).

Also honoured on the night were the University of Edinburgh, who won the GO Team of the Year Award; Waltham Forest Council, who won the GO Procurement Innovation or Initiative of the Year Award (Non-Health Organisations); and Central Bedfordshire Council, who won the GO Best Customer Engagement Initiative of the Year Award.

The final and most prestigious presentation of the night went to Mark Roscrow, Assistant Director of Shared Services, Procurement Services, NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership, who received the GO Lifetime Achievement Award.

Grahame Steed, Managing Editor of Awards sponsor Government Opportunities (GO), said: “Once again the National GO Awards have set the standard for public procurement across the country. In difficult times, it is clear to see that buyers and suppliers are rising to the challenge of delivering better services for less, and the GO Awards are the perfect way of sharing and showcasing some of the best initiatives from the past year. Every finalist had a compelling story to tell and those that have gone on to further success in the Awards deserve all the recognition they get.”

The National Government Opportunities Excellence in Public Procurement Awards were established in 2002.
