Eighty-two organisations are vying for honours in the CIPS Supply Management Awards 2003. By last month's closing date, they had submitted more than 160 entries in categories ranging from "most improved purchasing operation" to "best contribution to corporate responsibility".
The 10 judges, led by CIPS vice-president David Rich-Jones, have now begun the mammoth task of assessing entries against a range of criteria, the most important being the business benefits resulting from each project or initiative.
A shortlist will be announced in early August, and a second round of judging will then determine who will be declared winners at the awards dinner, to be held at the London Hilton Park Lane on 30 October.
More than 350 people have already booked their places.
