Individual of the Year Award
The profile of public procurement has never been higher, with Brexit, COVID-19 and the economic recovery all bringing greater focus on procurement and demand for better levels of performance, effectiveness, innovation and efficiency. Few professions offer the chance to make such an impact on society across Scotland.
The Individual Achievement of the Year Award recognises individuals who see challenges as opportunities. It’s for those who strive for continual improvement and have the vision and courage to make a difference; irrespective of what their position is.
Whether achieving great things early in their procurement career, or demonstrating a long-standing track record of success, this category celebrates individuals who set the standard for those who follow and who inspire those around them.
This category is not solely focused on the tangible benefits that can be derived from an outstanding procurement, but also focuses on the role that an individual has performed in developing change, or in guiding strategic decisions and delivering savings and efficiency through procurement.
Open to: Individuals working within a Scottish public sector organisation.
Timescale: A GO Awards submission in this category must cover activity during the period January 2022 to June 2023.
Please provide an overview of the individual being nominated, including details of their background and whether they are new to the profession or have many years of experience in delivering public contracts. (This answer will not be scored)
