November 2017

Newport Norse has been highly commended at the Government Opportunities (GO) Wales, Excellence in Public Procurement Awards 2017/18.


The company was one of the finalists in the ‘Procurement Innovation/Initiative Award for Local Government, Welsh Government & Housing’ category.


The climax to Wales’ Festival of Procurement, the GO Awards Wales 2017/18, took place at the Mercure Hotel, Cardiff, and was hosted by TV presenter Mai Davies. The black-tie presentation ceremony was attended by just under 300 delegates from the Welsh procurement community.


The event followed on from the Procurex Wales Live 2017 held at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena earlier in the day, which was attended by nearly 1,500 delegates. 


“Newport Norse is unique and cutting edge, being the first wholly publicly owned Local Authority Property Services Joint Venture in Wales,” commented Newport Norse’s Managing Director, Lyndon Watkins. 


“We are proud of the property and commercial services we deliver for both the public sector and commercial clients in Wales.  We take an innovative approach to service delivery and this fresh approach is demonstrated in the structure of our company itself, which has now been given recognition at these prestigious procurement awards”.
