Ministry of Finance has an advanced procurement system for all federal entities through which it announces purchases related to MoF or other ministries and federal entities. Through this system, it announces the contracts and invites tenders. In addition, it has a tenders and auctions system that ensures the success of purchases and helps in reducing financial and administrative costs by qualifying suppliers to participate in tenders, auctions and bids.
To register with Ministry of Finance, suppliers must meet the requirements set out, submit required documents, as well as pay the fees. After their registration is accepted, suppliers can access and participate in federal tenders by joining the Supplier’s Federal Register that provides several advantages, including the ability to view approved tenders and auctions and results of government bidding. They can cancel or modify those with publication dates that are still valid. Only those suppliers who are registered on the Supplier’s register can view winning bids as they are automated within the eProcurement system and seen only by registered suppliers.
Registration needs to be renewed annually. All these procedures can be carried out online.
