How we select our judges
We are confident that our awards stand out from others in the profession for being highly transparent, robust and ethical. Our standards are incredibly high and we carefully select judges based on this.

We invite judges from a selection of backgrounds, sectors and professions to ensure we have a wide range of knowledge and experience that reflects the range of entries we receive. We invite representatives from the previous winning organisations 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. Judges are allowed to enter the Awards and have to sign a confidentiality agreement with us, as well as declaring any conflicts of entry regarding the entries. Judges do not score categories which their organisations have entered and are not privy to scores or discussions on the judging days.
