NE Procurement shortlisted for international procurement award

An award winning North East procurement organisation has been nominated for an international award for its corporate social responsibility work.

NE Procurement has been shortlisted in the CSR category at this year’s Procurement Leaders Awards for its community regeneration fund, Future Sparks.

The awards, which celebrate global procurement excellence, recognise the best initiatives, individuals and companies from across the world and will see NE Procurement compete against multinational organisations including BT and Vale, the third-largest mining company in the world.

Rod Brasington, Chief Executive of NE Procurement, said: “We are honoured to be shortlisted in the CSR category alongside such reputable organisations. Our organisation was created to not only bring efficiencies in procurement for our members, but to also support our communities with employability and regeneration initiatives.

“It is testament to all our hard work and we are delighted to be recognised for these achievements.”

Since it was founded in 2008, NE Procurement has grown into an organisation that has procured over £215 million worth of products and services with over £1.3 million invested in community projects; ranging from identifying and removing barriers to employment, placing local trainees into paid work opportunities, investing in community mentors and supporting the development of a heritage resource centre.

NE Procurement has had previous success at the awards, winning global public sector procurement organisation of the year last year.

They were also awarded a highly commended in last year’s CSR category; the award they are hoping to win this year.

Winners will be announced at the award ceremony at Grosvenor House Hotel, London, on Thursday 28 May.
