Judges for the PFM Partnership Awards 2019 have been confirmed, with 12 individuals signing up to adjudicate within this year’s event.

Following the enthusiastic reception received for the 2018 event, the format will remain unchanged and will once again include visits to each of the finalists to view the results achieved by true partnership working and ensure that the most deserving entrants take home the trophy for their category on the night.

Once the PFM Partnership Awards list of finalists has been confirmed in June, the details of each one will be passed to their judging team to make arrangements to meet the service provider and client at the location of their choice.

All judging visits will then be given a deadline of the end of September for completion and allow all judges to assemble in the first week of October to discuss the winners.

With the 2019 event marking the PFM Awards’ 26th anniversary, the long-established method continues to win compliments for providing the highest levels of integrity within the judging process.

This year’s PFM Awards presentation evening will be held once again at The Brewery in London, taking place on 6 November.
