NEUPC Celebrates GO Awards success
We're absolutely thrilled to have achieved 'Highly Commended' in not just one, but both of the GO Awards categories that we entered. We were in categories alongside NHS England, various city and county councils, and other purchasing consortia, so for NEUPC to be recognised at a national awards ceremony is a fantastic achievement.
For the 'Best Customer Engagement' award we were recognised for how we work with our members to identify opportunities, create future-proofed solutions and minimise risks. We do this through our account management approach and our Procurement Shared Service.
Over the past year we've been working hard to boost employability in the HE Procurement sector, launching our CIPS Study Centre and match-funded procurement apprenticeship scheme. These two key achievements are now rewarded with the Highly Commended awards in the 'Best Employment Initiative' category.
In true Oscars style, we'd like to thank our members for their continued support, we look forward to carrying on the fantastic work we're doing to save you time and money through collaborative procurement.
Congratulations also to two of our members, the University of Leicester and the University of Huddersfield who were both finalists in the “Procurement Team of the Year (Other)” category.
