digwyddiad y llynedd, a gynhaliwyd yn Neuadd y Ddinas, Caerdydd, yn ogystal.
Cinio Gwobrau Caffael Cenedlaethol Cymru yw’r achlysur perffaith ar gyfer cydnabod a gwobrwyo
unigolion a thimau sydd:
• Y mwyaf arloesol
• Yn gyrru cynnydd caffael cyhoeddus ymlaen
• Yn dylanwadu ar newidiadau, ac
• Yn gweithredu polisi caffael mewn modd sydd yn rhoi buddion amgylcheddol, cymdeithasol
ac economaidd gwirioneddol i Gymru, neu
• Sydd yn gyflenwyr sydd yn cyflenwi nwyddau arloesol neu wasanaethau i’r sector gyhoeddus
Mae’r noson wobrau yn gyfle i’r rhai hynny sydd yn prynu, a’r rhai hynny sydd yn cyflenwi, nwyddau
ar gyfer y sector gyhoeddus Gymreig i ddangos beth yw arfer gorau mewn gwirionedd, ac fe gawn
ddathlu llwyddiannau a thalu diolch i’r rhai hynny sydd wedi gwneud cyfraniad i les Cymru.”

The Welsh National Procurement Awards Dinner is a perfect showcase for recognising and rewarding
individuals and teams who:
• Are the most innovative,
• Drive public procurement progress,
• Influence change, and,
• Implement procurement policy in a way that delivers real environmental, social and economic benefits for Wales, or
• Are suppliers supplying innovative goods or services to the public sector

show what best practice really is so we can celebrate achievements and thank those who have made
