How we select our judges

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 industry for being highly transparent, robust and ethical. Our standards are incredibly high and we carefully select judges based on this. 

The judging process

This consists of two phases. Firstly judges will individually read, score and comment on all of the entries. The second phase will consist of an in-depth group discussion on each entry and a majority vote will be conducted to determine the shortlist and winners, taking into account, scores, comments and discussions.
