GO award success for Scotland Excel

New Build Residential Framework is named 'Best Procurement Delivery'

Scotland Excel has scooped the award for 'Best Procurement Delivery' at the recent Scottish GO awards for its New Build Residential Framework. 

The organisation's PPE team was also recognised, receiving highly commended in the team of the year category. 

Scotland Excel Chief Executive, Julie Welsh, said: “It was wonderful to have the Scottish GO awards back as an ‘in person’ event this year as the awards are a fantastic way to bring Scotland’s procurement community together, to celebrate the innovative work we do.

“Scotland Excel has an excellent track record at the awards, so I was delighted to receive highly commended in the ‘Team of the Year’ category, for our PPE team who worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to ensure a robust response to supply chain issues.

“And of course, we were absolutely thrilled to win the award for ‘Best Procurement Delivery’ for our New Build Residential Framework. The framework was implemented in partnership with 11 Scottish councils to support the public sector’s efforts to build new, affordable social housing throughout Scotland.

“It accelerates projects by reducing the time it takes councils and housing associations to engage a supplier to build homes, while also having economic and social value firmly at its core.”
