The CIPS Awards are one of the leading recognitions concerning procurements across the world. It is conducted by London-based The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) â€“ a global not-for-profit organization and professional body dedicated for promoting best practices in procurement and supply management.
The Government e-Marketplace (GeM) won this prestigious award under the category of â€œBest Use of Digital Technologyâ€. It was shortlisted for two other categories â€“ â€œPublic Procurement Project of the Yearâ€ and â€œBest Initiative to Build a Diverse Supply Baseâ€. The GeM platform was launched by the Indian Government to enhance transparency, efficiency and speed of the public procurement within the country.
