Scotland Excel, the national procurement body for Scotland’s local authorities, has shortlisted Kibble for an Innovation award as part of their Supplier Excellence Awards programme. The recognition is thanks to Kibble’s new approach to the National Residential Care Framework involving all 32 of Scotland’s local authorities.
The Scotland Excel Supplier Excellence Awards recognise the innovation and excellence of suppliers who go the extra mile to deliver tangible benefits to members of Scotland Excel and support the delivery of key public services. The winners will be revealed at a prestigious awards ceremony and dinner on 20 February 2018 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow.
Jim Carle, Executive Director for Early Years Residential Services at Kibble, said:
“It is a huge privilege to be shortlisted in the ‘Innovation’ category. We work very hard to design services that work for our local authority partners whilst providing high quality and excellence.
“Our approach means that we can achieve the best outcomes for the young people in our care and efficiency for the public purse.”
Julie Welsh, Director of Scotland Excel, said:
“As the only awards programme in Scotland which values the role and achievements of suppliers in public procurement, our awards are totally unique.”
