Team Awards

  • The winner of these awards will represent the best example of innovation in each category. You may “select all categories that apply” for a specific project nomination to be considered in more than one area, but projects will only be eligible to win in one category. This year’s categories include:
    • Innovations in Sourcing 
    • Innovations in Outsourcing 
    • Innovations in Third Party Management 
    • Innovations in Supplier Performance 
    • Innovations in Digitization 
    • Innovations in Governance/Compliance 
    • Innovations in Talent Management 
    • Innovations in Sustainability
  • ​In each area, the project can include automation, major transformation or process improvement, but the winning companies will show the greatest achievement in terms of fundamentally changing the nature of their business in some capacity.

Individual Awards

  • These awards recognize individuals who have demonstrated ingenuity, initiative and innovation in their careers.
  •  
    • Rising Star Award - This award recognizes an individual newer to the industry who has shown initiative and promise by delivering a project, developing thought leadership or creating a new methodology that is likely to have a lasting impact. 
    • Sourcing Star Award - This award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated inspiring, insightful and innovative work in the sourcing field over the course of their career in the space. The winner of this award will be a more seasoned veteran than the Rising Star candidates, and will have delivered projects, thought leadership or other tangible outcomes that have made a transformative impact on the industry.
