Birmingham-based technology services company Probrand has launched a rolling award programme designed to recognise public sector excellence in IT procurement.
As the public sector continues to come under pressure to implement more efficient ways of working, procurement is one area where organisations are rarely rewarded for saving time and money as part of better ways of working.
The first award was presented at Wolverhampton City Primary Care Trust’s inaugural Information Management & Technology Excellence awards.
The awards are designed to acknowledge individual employees and teams for ‘going that extra mile’ through patient focused innovation, good practice and service improvement.
Probrand’s award has been designed to specifically recognise teams or individuals that have shown they consistently secure best value IT purchases.
Best value is considered to be best price purchases delivered within the shortest possible time.
