There’s just under a week to go until the UKUPC Conference 2023! We are excited to welcome you to the University of Exeter from 5-7 September.

The Conference will play host to our UKUPC Conference and Procurement Awards dinner on Wednesday 6 September. This is a great opportunity to recognise the outstanding successes of our members and suppliers. But with a slight twist. Unlike many other industry awards, the eventual winners will be decided directly by you our conference delegates.

The UKUPC Procurement Awards 2023 categories are:

  1. Outstanding Procurement Initiative by a UKUPC member
  2. Outstanding Responsible Procurement Initiative by a UKUPC member
  3. Outstanding Collaborative project by a framework supplier

How it works:

Three nominees have been shortlisted for each award – picked anonymously by our expert judging panel. We’ve chosen to keep the identities of each of the finalists anonymous from judges and conference delegates until after the voting has closed to avoid unconscious bias during the selection process.

Find out more about the submissions by the finalists for each category in our UKUPC Procurement Awards 2023 shortlist here. We recommend you read this now, whilst at a desktop or laptop, as this will be easier than on a mobile phone!
