This award recognises an outstanding procurement transformation project or initiative that has resulted in improved business outcomes or increased competitive advantage. Projects can relate to an improvement of an under-performing procurement function or taking an already high-performing function to the next level, but they must explain how they have been delivering on their core objectives within the last 12 months.
