Early call for Procurement Professional Awards entrants

Procurement professionals across Australia are being urged to enter the CIPS Australia Procurement Professional Awards, which recognise best practice in procurement.

The awards, which are in their second year, are being launched earlier in 2008 to give entrants plenty of time to complete their entry form. Nominees will have four months to enter before the August 15 deadline.

  • Best people development Initiative
  • Best process improvement initiative
  • Best supplier partnership
  • Most improved procurement operation
