The waiting finally came to an end last night as the winners of the 12 team categories, and one special prize, in the CIPS Supply Management Awards 2014 were announced.

At a glittering ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London the great and the good of the procurement profession gathered to learn their fate.

The team categories celebrated the full breadth of the profession, from corporate social responsibility through to people development and best supplier relationship management. New categories covering the third sector and technology were also included.
