It's celebration time again in the YPO camp as we're delighted to announce that we've won a prestigious local government award!

We collected the award at the prestigious Scotland Excel Supplier Excellence Awards held at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow on 20 February. More than 350 guests from across the public and private sectors attended the glittering ceremony hosted by broadcaster, Dougie Vipond.

The award was in the Customer Service category, recognising our excellent levels of customer service that we offer to Scottish local authorities, providing products and resources to schools across Scotland.

The Supplier Excellence Awards is the only award programme dedicated to the role of suppliers in public procurement, and celebrate the economic, social and environmental benefits delivered for communities through Scotland Excel contracts. 

Scotland Excel’s Director, Julie Welsh said: “We are delighted to recognise the vital role of businesses that go the extra mile when providing goods and services through our contracts.

“It’s right and fitting that companies such as YPO, which demonstrate excellence when supporting delivery of public services are applauded for their achievements. The standard of entries for this year’s awards was higher than ever. On behalf of Scotland Excel, I’d like to congratulate YPO on their well-deserved success.”

Scotland Excel is the centre of procurement expertise for local government in Scotland. The Supplier Excellence Awards are open to more than 800 suppliers participating in their national contracts worth c. £1bn per annum.
