22nd July 2020
Last Friday (17th July) saw the UK National GO Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2020 take place, following the postponement of the event in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The GO Awards focus on recognising innovative procurement practices across the UK so it was fitting that the event boldly decided to run the Awards ceremony online for the very first time.
Farrans was one of the organisations recognised on the day for excellence in procurement, winning the ‘Social Value’ Award for Altnagelvin North Wing Redevelopment and ‘Infrastructure or Capital Project of the Year’ for the A6 Dualling Scheme project.
Grahame Steed, Lead Judge for the GO Awards Programme, said:
“Right now, procurement is front-page news with public service delivery at the forefront of economic recovery. That is why this year, it was more important than ever for our GO Awards to take place, and once again recognise the people and organisations making great procurement happen.
“Congratulations to all our highly commended and winning organisations, including Farrans, on their well-deserved success.”
