The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has started implementing the e-tendering system through the e-portal of the Tender Board. The scheme is part of the e-government initiative promoted by the Omani government in a bid to facilitate businesses. The e-tendering system, implemented in collaboration with Information Technology Authority (ITA), is a multi-stage system that will be used in the tendering process at the Ministry starting from the preparation of the technical specifications for the tender until awarding the tender.
Said bin Awadh al Shukri, Head of IT Development Department, said that the payment of fees will be done electronically through the e-payment gateway of the ITA. The financial, technical bids, the copy of the banking guarantee, the e-signature and the submission of bids will be completed using the password provided to the user.
The second feature is the opening of bids and ensuring that the bids meet the requirements in terms of payment of fees and submission of banking guarantee.
The third feature is the assessment and award of tenders. The system has a feature that allows to assess the bid, its technical and financial offers and make a comparative analysis among the different bids. The system also allows for sending inquiries and comments to companies. It allows companies to receive answers and submit their responses.
“Negotiations may also be done through the system very easily and quickly”, he added. The Ministry of Commerce and Industry called upon contractors and companies to register their data through the e-tender portal of the Tender Board. — ONA
