1 Best supply chain collaboration
Collaboration can be taken in its widest form. This category is open to suppliers who have worked collaboratively within the supply chain. Examples could be suppliers who have brought together everyone involved in the delivery of a project or contract, working towards a common goal and finding collaborative solutions to problems, or those who have successfully integrated SMEs into the supply chain.
2 Best application of technology/innovation implementation with tangible savings/benefits to an SLC - joint between solution provider and end user
This award is open to all suppliers, whatever size. The solution provider can be Tier 2, Tier 3/4 or SME i.e. from across the supply chain, working collaboratively with the SLCs to achieve benefits from innovation. The application form should be submitted by the supply chain organisation, but must be a joint application with the SLC.

industries which provide cost-effective solutions to meeting the nuclear
decommissioning mission, or other projects across the NDA Estate.

Innovations provide savings and benefits to the NDA Estate, whether consultancy or technical, new systems of working, new products or processes, adapting existing or using something in a different way, Innovation can be applied from any level of the supply chain, whether an SME with a direct contract with an SLC, or lower levels of the supply chain.
