The shortlist has been announced for the 2016 CIPS Middle East Supply Management Awards.

The Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) leads the way, receiving six nominations in the team categories, and a further nomination in the Young Procurement and Supply Chain Management Professional of the Year category.

ENOC is closely followed by Etihad Airways, which earned five team and two individual nominations in the Professional of the Year category. Rival carrier Emirates Airlines has also scooped four nods in the team categories.

Other organisations with multiple nominations include National Bank of Abu Dhabi, The Petroleum Institute, Emirates Global Aluminium, TECOM Group and Abu Dhabi Airports.

The winners in the nine team and two individual categories will be revealed at the ceremony at The Address, Dubai Marina in the UAE in the evening of 26 April.

Duncan Brock, chair of the judges and group director customer relations at CIPS, said: "I’m very impressed with the quality of entries in this year’s Awards. It’s great to see a record number of entries, which reflects the growing development and maturity of procurement in the region.

“The high standard of entries meant selecting the shortlists was a real challenge for the judges and stimulated some good discussions between us all.”

The gala evening celebrating the best of procurement and supply chain in the Middle East and north Africa will take place following the CIPS Middle East Conference which takes place at the same venue during the day.
