America’s Procurement Awards provide organizations with a platform to gain tremendous visibility and acclaim with the regional teams and people they do business with every day. But, why stop there? Adapt your regional entry to highlight the global impacts of your efforts and submit to win the World Procurement Awards. While each opportunity holds tremendous prestige on its own, applying for both is your chance at wide-scale recognition as not only the best in the Americas but the best in the world.

To get started, take advantage of our 2-for-1 submission process. When submitting for America’s Procurement Awards, simply check the box to replicate your entry for the World Procurement Awards. Then adjust your entry, so it focuses on the global impacts and successes of your efforts, rather than the details of your regional project. It’s that easy - two for one entries, two for one prestige.
