The Awards

The procurement of ‘value for money’ goods and services is a critical element in any business and, over the last few years, has risen up the agenda in educational establishments all over the UK.  Faced with ever tightening budgets and being asked to do ‘more with less’ means schools are having to become increasingly skilled and innovative in how they conduct their purchasing activities.

Here at the EPEA we know that there is a huge amount of fantastic work being done in the procurement arena in schools and these awards have been set up to recognise this.  We want to celebrate success and share in all the best practice so that others can learn and develop their own procurement skills and strategies.

 

Celebrating, encouraging and promoting excellence in education procurement.
