Evaluation and judges

We have a robust and comprehensive process in place that ensures integrity, impartiality and transparency. Our judges are leading professionals that span the field of Contract and Commercial Management in public, private, and nonprofit sectors. We insist that all judges inform us if there is any conflict of interest or if they feel bias may occur.


Evaluation process

Each submission will be evaluated via a 3-step process.

Submission review

A panel of leading industry expert judges will review and rank each submission alongside its criteria within the category they are assigned.

Peer review

The judges panel will join together for a peer review and choose the finalists for each category.

Winners selected

The final winners will be decided by an additional small panel of select judges including a leading senior professional in the field.
