The IACCM Innovation and Excellence Awards

A new awards program for 2019 celebrating innovation and excellence success stories both regionally and globally.

As an association whose purpose is to improve the quality and integrity of trading relationships, we understand the importance of recognizing individuals and organizations who are achieving the highest standards in the field of contract and commercial management.

Our new IACCM Innovation & Excellence Awards 2019 will celebrate success stories from around the world.

Submissions can be made either at a regional level or if your entry is truly international in nature, you may prefer to submit directly to the global program.

Regional Programs

You can submit your entry to one of our regional programs: EMEA, Asia Pacific or Americas. The finalists of each regional heat will be invited to a prestigious awards ceremony at our IACCM annual conferences. The winners of each category at a regional level will automatically be put forward to the Global Awards Program and the finalists will be notified and invited to attend the Global Awards Ceremony which will be held in 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona.

There are five awards and we encourage individuals and organizations, large and small who believe they have a story to share, to enter their regional heat. If your entry is truly international in nature, you may prefer to enter our international heat.

The categories are:

Award for personal initiative

For an individual practitioner who has shown outstanding leadership or endeavor in delivering value and raising the profile of contract and commercial management and in managing contracts fairly and openly. We are looking for professionals across the globe who can demonstrate success in creating an atmosphere of openness, cooperation, trust, honesty, commitment and mutual understanding among team members and between contracting parties. You can nominate yourself, someone on your team or an individual from one of your customer or supplier relationships.

Award for operational improvement

Initiatives that have delivered significant business value through an improved commercial or contracting process or practices.

Award for strategic direction
