Tender Board Hosts Engagement Workshop with Local Purchasing Authorities

The Tender Board for the Kingdom of Bahrain today hosted a comprehensive engagement workshop with local purchasing authorities to discuss a range of proposed amendments to the tender law.

The workshop, held at the Wyndham Grand hotel, Bahrain Bay, was chaired by the Secretary General of the Tender Board HE Hayam Al Awadhi, and was attended by representatives of key purchasing authorities in the Kingdom.

It was noted that the Tender Board is continuously looking to review and refine its operations, keeping abreast of the latest developments and innovations being introduced within industry and public services, and adopting an approach of continuous improvement, growth and development.

The workshop is also one of the outcomes of the Tender Board’s development plan, as announced in November 2017, and approved by the Cabinet chaired by HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister, based on the recommendation of the Government Executive Committee chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.

The workshop paid particular attention to a number of proposed amendments currently being considered to national tender law that would seek to offer a range of improvements with regards to ongoing two way communications with stakeholders, simplifying the current tender process for both contractors and purchasing authorities, as well as overcoming a number of current challenges that have been identified within the current legal framework.
