NHSCS shortlisted for National Government Opportunites (GO) Procurement Innovation Award

5th February 2015

The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership – of which the NHS Commercial Solutions is a member - has been shortlisted for a Government Opportunities (GO) Award 2015/16 for its nursing and nursing-related staff framework agreement.

The Partnership, which is a collaboration between the four NHS Procurement Hubs (NHS Commercial Solutions, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub, London Procurement Partnership and North of England NHS Commercial Procurement Collaborative) developed the nursing framework to meet the needs of its members for quality temporary and permanent staff from the UK and overseas.

The framework provides NHS customers and other public sector bodies with access to a wide range of suppliers who are able to provide nurses and nursing-related staff covering a number of specialisms.

Now in their 15th year, the National Government Opportunities Excellence in Public Procurement Awards are the UK’s premier celebration of excellence, achievement and advancement in the procurement sector.

Grahame Steed, Government Opportunities Managing Editor and Lead Judge, National GO Awards 2015/16 said:  “The GO Awards are now in their 15th year and as you will see from this year’s chosen finalists, the profile of the entries has not only raised the bar once again, it’s set a benchmark that all those involved in public procurement within the UK should acknowledge, appreciate and strive for.

“This is our biggest awards ever! It had to be; the standard this year was so high that the judges struggled to make the finalists shortlist. But they have and the competition for each category is fierce. Thank you to everyone who entered – procurement in the UK is in a good place.”

The awards will be announced at a gala ceremony in Manchester in February 2015. To view the full list of finalists and categories, click here.
