2024/25 Categories

The GO Awards Scotland 2024/25 are a unique opportunity to showcase the innovations, initiatives and advancements that make Scotland a world leader in smart and effective public procurement.

Our categories reflect the diversity of procurement requirements and initiatives across Scotland’s public sector. Open to public, private and third sector organisations involved in the procurement and delivery of public services across Scotland, take this opportunity to reward your team, recognise your achievements and get into the spotlight by entering the GO Awards today!

This year we are using a new platform, Zealous, so things may look a little different than they have previously. We are working on creating a manual to guide you through the new platform which will be coming soon.
