The CIPS Supply Management Awards judging panel consists of representatives from CIPS as well as senior procurement leaders.
We do not allow consultants to join our panel and we limit
non-CIPS judges to just two terms on the panel. All judges sign a
confidentiality agreement with us, as well as declaring any conflicts of
interest regarding the entries. Those judges who have declared a conflict of
interest do not score those submissions.
We are confident that our awards stand out from others in the profession for being highly transparent, robust and ethical. Our standards are incredibly high and we carefully select judges based on this.
