Winner of the GO Team of the Year Award – Scottish Local Authorities

Go Award WinnersTeam working is pivotal to the success of public procurement, and the GO Team of the Year Award recognises the power and potential of a focused and unified approach to procurement initiatives.

This Award recognises communication, collaboration and a collective determination to deliver excellence in public services.

Recognition is given based on the accomplishments of the team in relation to its size and the complexity of its procurement activities.

October 2014 saw Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar (my own team) win the GO Scottish Local Government Team of the Year Award!

When we were presented with the award I took the opportunity to emphasis what we’d achieved through a short poem:

They told us we were too small,

But we did it anyway.

They told us our suppliers wouldn’t cope,

But we did it anyway.

They told us islands were different,

But we did it anyway.

And they told us we’d never win an award,

But we’ve done it anyway!
