This category is aimed at novices in the digitisation of either private or public sector procurement, who have only been doing it since 2016. The award will be given to the organisation or individual that demonstrates the most successful implementation and use of eAuctions and eInquiries, digitisation of processes or use of eProcurement solutions, leading to decreased prices, transaction times and costs. The benchmark of success might be the contribution of the solution to savings, or the number of eAuctions and eInquiries carried out, or the total value of tenders, or even the number of administrators involved. An innovative approach to the implementation of the aforementioned solutions may be a factor as well.
This category is aimed at the most successful users and propagators of eAuctions, eInquiries and other electronic procurement solutions. The award will be given to an organisation or individual that uses the advantages of eAuction systems and other electronic procurement tools in a way that opens up new opportunities to their users. Besides an innovative approach, other factors that will be taken into account include managerial decisions supporting the growth of the digitisation of procurement and procurement processes, long-term success in using electronic procurement solutions, total value of eTenders, number of competitions, support and promotion of transparency, and the use of eProcurement solutions leading to an improvement in supplier relationships.
