After separate assessments, followed up with robust and passionate discussions at last week’s judging day, the shortlist for nine team and two individual categories for this year’s CIPS Supply Management Awards was announced today. Link to two stories.
To celebrate and mark the efforts of those who have come this far, CIPS and Supply Management is hosting a networking drinks and BBQ on the 26 July, in association with headline sponsor BravoSolution at Kings Place in London. Invites will be sent next week.
This event was a hit last year when nominees from organisations as diverse as Cancer Research, E.ON UK, Telefónica and The Royal Mail came along. And while the overall tone was one of open transparency, there was still a competitive air between shortlisted organisations.
Ahead of the event, the next stage of the judging process continues until the final day when the judges meet again next month to pick winners from the shortlist.
The gala evening and ceremony takes place on 12 September 2012 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. MasterCard and Hays Procurement are also sponsors. And QinetiQ Commerce Decisions is the official technology provider for the judging.
