Best Infrastructure or Capital Project Award
Government builds big – think Crossrail, HS2 and the Queensferry Crossing Bridge. But it also builds local, with major projects across defence, health and education, amongst others. This Award recognises projects of scale, initiatives that are long-lasting, high risk and difficult to deliver; but which make a massive difference to the people who use them and to the Scottish and UK economy as a whole. Often with complex and diverse supply chains, these projects incorporate all aspects of successful procurement, including commissioning, design, sustainable procurement, social value contract management and more.
Open to: Scottish public sector organisations and private/voluntary organisations from within or outside Scotland with documented support from a sponsoring authority ‒ for example, a written statement with the name and position of the sponsor, either within the submission or as an attachment.
Timescale: A GO Awards submission in this category must cover activity during the period January 2021 to June 2022.
Please describe the infrastructure project that your organisation has helped to deliver, the timelines involved, the requirement for the project and for whom the contract is being delivered. Please include details of why the procurement was undertaken, the aims and deliverables that were desired and the critical success factors to successful delivery. (This answer will not be scored)
