UK's CIPS certifies Dubai's RTA for procurement and supply operations
Dubai's RTA becomes first government entity in the roads and transport field to obtain CIPS' certificate of excellence
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has obtained a certificate of excellence from the UK-based Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) for its procurement and supply operations, making it the first government entity in the field of roads and transport to gain the recognition.
According to the RTA, this is a vote of confidence in the government entity’s management of contracts and supply chains.
Commenting on the recognition, the director of procurement at RTA’s Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector, Saeed Al Marri, said: “The awarding of this certificate followed strict scrutiny of RTA’s procurement and supply procedures under CIPS assessment programme, which examines businesses in five key areas: leadership and organisation, strategy and policies, people, operations and systems, and performance management.”
Al Marri added: “We have designed our procurement and supply operations to be simple, transparent and comprehensive. They enable suppliers in any part of the world to bid competitively for RTA tenders.”
