The GDI Awards’ Authorized Provider Category is open to any GInI Authorized Provider in good standing – whether ATP, ATAP, or AUP – who has met the award’s criteria by producing a significantly positive impact in its regional area of operation on behalf of GInI and its mission. One award is awarded each year from amongst all active GInI Authorized Providers.

This award is open to any GInI Authorized Provider, anywhere in the world, without regard for any irrelevant attributes of that Provider.

To Qualify for the Authorized Provider Category Award:

  1. The Provider must have been fully active over the course of the entire preceding year.
  2. The Provider must have delivered a sizeable number of GInI exam-preparation training courses and/or GInI accreditation assessments when compared to all other Providers.
  3. The Provider must have – over the preceding year, and through its efforts in association with GInI – had a significantly positive impact in its region, in terms of building and/or activating innovation capabilities inside different organizations.

Each of the above must be attested by the applicant.

Anyone can nominate an Authorized Provider for a Authorized Provider GDI Award – including self-nomination by the affected Provider itself.
