Digital Procurement Platform

Accelerating digital transformation of government procurement process

Developed by the Ministry of Finance, it brings together the federal entities and registered suppliers on a single platform, where all the stages of the procurement process including announcement, bidding and following up on tenders, placing purchase orders, and generating invoices, can be completed online. The platform is part of the UAE leadership’s vision to support the digital transformation of procurement across the federal entities.
