GEP Procurement Team - Mid-size Enterprise Award Winner

Greater Toronto Airports Authority

Entry Overview

In the past, GTAA’s Strategic Sourcing team was a mostly transactional function, hampered by inflexible rules and struggling to collaborate with other functions to deliver greater value. But by restructuring the team, providing new training opportunities, overhauling its processes and implementing new initiatives such as supplier relationship management and a sustainable procurement programme, the team has transformed into a trusted partner that works collaboratively with stakeholders across the contract lifecycle. Judges praised the function’s “Value. Innovation. Efficiency.” vision and the ambitious scale of the transformation.
