Boskalis has won the 2014 Dutch Sourcing Award (DSA). Ten jury members led by Prof. Dr. Ing Jacques Reijniers, the professor of Procurement Management at Nyenrode Business University, awarded Boskalis first prize in the Sustainability category for the way Procurement acted as the driver for the current sustainability climate at Boskalis. Procurement was able to transform this change into a large number of projects with impressive results, setting an example. That is why Boskalis also scooped the overall prize, emerging as the winner of the DSA 2014.
