Quality Awards

Timeline

The submission period is open from February 25, 2014. The submission deadline varies from market unit to market unit but will be in the third quarter of 2014 except for Austria and Switzerland. For Austria the submission deadline was early May 2014 and for Switzerland late April 2014.
Once the submission period is closed in an SAP market unit, the shortlisted candidates are contacted to schedule a one-hour webcast of the project/program with a judging panel which together with the completed nomination form determines the winners. Once all market units have announced their local winners, the Gold winners (and Excellence winners for Innovation categories) automatically enter the regional SAP Quality Awards from which the overall winners across Europe, Middle East and Africa will be found.
