Categories


Cross-Functional Collaboration Award

Collaboration with the wider business is crucial if procurement is to make a significant impact; whether that be with finance, product development, operations or marketing or another key business function. This category will recognise a project or initiative which has collaborated with another function or group of functions at its core and that has delivered tangible commercial benefits. Judges will be looking for specific evidence of success and the role played by procurement in the collaboration.

External Collaboration Award


Procurement is in an excellent position to take advantage of the capabilities that exist in the supply base, and by collaborating with suppliers or other third parties can help both parties to succeed.

This award will recognise the collaborative efforts of an organisation and an external supplier or group of suppliers, which have had a tangible impact. Judges will look for real evidence of success in the form of improved efficiencies, innovative new approaches or product developments, reduced costs or reduced risk, among others.

Procurement Excellence Award


Procurement excellence can be defined as when procurement:

  • Delivers tangible results to the bottom and top line of the business; in terms of cost, risk and value creation;
  • Is a strategic business function with support of the management board;
  • Has key relationships with business stakeholders and is involved in strategic decisions at an early stage;
  • Brings continual improvement to the function and innovation from the supply base;
  • Acts in a responsible and fair manner

Procurement Leader Award


Great procurement leaders inspire, challenge and build great teams around them. They know when to play safe, when to take risks and are passionate supporters of the function. They are visionaries and strategists who are also able to spur on those around them to achieve great things.


The Procurement Leader Award is open to all senior executives who have strategic responsibility for their organisation’s procurement function and will recognise how he or she has impacted the wider business and put procurement at the top table in their organisation.

Procurement Team Award


This category recognises the team that has worked together to achieve a significant goal. The team will have demonstrated initiative, creativity, and drive to be a positive force for change and improvement in their business.

Judges will be looking for teams with a broad mix of skills, personalities and backgrounds which have worked together to drive world-class performance in procurement.

Transformation Award


Procurement organisations go through transformations for a number of reasons – to achieve a step change in capability, to align closer to a wider business strategy, to get closer to the business and key markets or to increase compliance, among others.


This award will reward those organisations that have achieved great things through a significant transformation whether that’s improving the quality of an under-performing function or taking an already high-performing organisation to the next level.

NEW FOR 2018! Solution Provider of the Year Award


The solution provider and the work they do to help procurement teams attain their goals is vital to the overall achievement and development of the procurement profession.

This category is open to consultancy, outsourcing, recruitment, solutions and technology and training organisations based within the Asia-Pacific region or have an office in this same region. This category will be assessed on both the overall ability to differentiate from competitors and the impact of a project or piece of work that stands out for results and innovation. Winners will describe a project implemented for a client that demonstrates value for money, great customer service and positive client feedback. Part of the criteria involves entrants providing a detailed and verifiable client testimonial.
