About the Awards

The National Procurement Awards (NPA) recognise procurement for its pivotal role as a core component in building robust supply chains and shaping overall business strategy. Returning once again, the NPA offers a distinguished platform to honour the most remarkable and transformative procurement projects of the past 12 months, along with the dedicated teams driving them forward.

These awards are adjudicated by esteemed peers—leading procurement professionals from Ireland's most esteemed companies, ensuring a fair and expert evaluation process. The Irish Times serves as the Communications Partner for the awards, providing comprehensive coverage of all stages of the event on their esteemed online platform.

Simply being shortlisted for these awards elevates national profiles, while winning guarantees extensive national exposure. Take a glance at our past winners' list, featuring a 'who’s who' of procurement leaders. And, of course, winners receive the prestigious trophy as a testament to their excellence.

Organised by BusinessRiver, the top business community platform in Ireland, the NPA joins a distinguished portfolio including the Green Awards, Pharma Industry Awards, Aviation Industry Awards, Education Awards, and Facilities Management Awards, among others. BusinessRiver also hosts exclusive summits and professional round table meetings by invitation only.
