Individual Categories

  • Innovator of the Year: The Innovator of the Year award will give recognition to an individual who has seen success from thinking outside of the box. The Innovator of the Year finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges and the winner will be chosen by the public. Please note: Individuals can be self-nominated.
  • Lifetime Achievement Award: The Lifetime Achievement Award will give recognition to an individual with 20 years experience working in procurement that has seen outstanding results in corporate/indirect sourcing. Please note: Individuals can be self nominated.

Team Categories

  • Innovative Procurement Team Award: The Innovative Procurement Team Award was created to give recognition to your team efforts in achieving outstanding corporate/indirect sourcing and procurement results. Please note: Teams can be self nominated.

Nominating someone for an award is the ideal opportunity to celebrate success, motivate your procurement team and recognize the efforts that drive your organization’s success.
