Education Procurement Excellence Awards 2015

The Education Procurement Excellence Awards is a brand new award which is now open for entry. Check out the quote below from the award organisers outlining why the award has been launched this year:

“The procurement of ‘value for money’ goods and services is a critical element in any business and, over the last few years, has risen up the agenda in educational establishments all over the UK.  Faced with ever tightening budgets and being asked to do ‘more with less’ means schools are having to become increasingly skilled and innovative in how they conduct their purchasing activities.”

The awards are free to enter and are hoping to encourage many entrants across the twelve categories.
