Ready for Business is delighted to have been nominated as a finalist in 2 categories, Collaborative Procurement and Procurement Innovation, in the Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Awards Scotland 2013/14. This is a fantastic recognition of progress and achievement for our procurement activity, especially given the level of competition for these Awards. While we will not know whether we will go on to win an Award until 22 October, even achieving Finalist status is a great commendation for the programme and all we have achieved.
“The GO Awards Scotland are the most prestigious public procurement awards in the country, and the 2013/14 Awards has seen
intense competition across each of the categories. Given this, and an overall increase in the quality of submissions this year, to be nominated as a GO Awards finalist is a fantastic achievement – one which every organisation involved should be extremely proud of.” – Grahame Steed, Lead Judge, GO Awards Scotland 2013/14.
