The Judging Process:
Nominees are assessed against The Faculty’s X Factor Procurement Leadership Framework which is based on a demonstration of strength and balance across four key areas:
1. Functional Excellence
2. Leadership Attributes
3. Commercial Leadership
4. People Leadership

The Award is adjudicated by an independent panel of judges.

Key Dates and Award Process:

  • Nominations open: 12 February
  • Nominations close: 23 March
  • Once a nomination has been received the nominee will be contacted to confirm their interest in proceeding with the award.
  • Nominees and their line manager will be asked to complete a survey based on The Faculty’s X Factor research. Both manager and nominee must complete the survey to be further considered.
  • From the X Factor criteria, finalists are selected and these entries assessed by an independent judging panel and the winners are announced at the 2018 CPO Forum Gala Dinner on Tuesday 1 May.
