Scotland Excel Supplier Excellence Awards - Now Open

Businesses to be recognised as awards open for entries

Supplier Awards

Scotland Excel’s Supplier Excellence Awards are back and have now opened for entries with nine categories unveiled.

The awards are free to enter and will recognise the contribution made by suppliers in delivering benefits to our members. Entries will be open for 6 weeks.

Councillor John Shaw, Convener of Scotland Excel, said: “We are at the forefront of public sector procurement for local authorities and we work hard to make sure procurement supports the sustainable delivery of quality services across Scotland’s communities.  Our suppliers play a valuable role in this and it’s vital their achievements are celebrated.

“If you supply to one of our frameworks, you are eligible to enter up to nine different award categories, with opportunities to win whether you’re a large national company or a small local business.

“The awards will recognise the innovation and excellence demonstrated by our suppliers. And I’d urge those who have gone the extra mile in supporting councils in their delivery of public services to enter our Supplier Excellence Awards.”

The nine categories are:

• Value for Money
• Environmental Practices
• Community Benefits
• Innovation
• Partnership Working
• Customer Service
• Local Excellence
• Ethical Sourcing
• Workforce Development

You can enter the awards at  Entries close on the 27 October. 

Winners will be announced at a prestigious awards dinner and evening ceremony on Tuesday 20 February 2018 in the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow.
