DUBAI: The Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai has partnered with Tejari, a leading global strategic procurement solution provider, to digitise supplier submittal of invoices and manage supplier invoices online through the official Dubai Government online portal eSupply.

The switch to the eSupply automated procurement and purchasing portal, which will allow fast and easy completion of internal transactions, is in line with the directive of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, that no employee or customer of the Government of Dubai should need to print any paper document after 2021.

The partnership is in line with integrating best practices and smart applications into governance in line with the strategy of Dubai, and the UAE in general. The eSupply website makes DED the first government entity in Dubai to activate automated registration and qualification of suppliers. The new platform has an integrated process wherein procurement and contract procedures are unified and it will contribute substantially to the e-transformation of services across Dubai.

Abdulla Ail Al Janahi, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Tejari commented saying: “This service, which is adaptable and flexible to deploy across all departments, will streamline payments in an effective and structural way so the department is able to track in real time and respond strategically. The adoption of such digital technology demonstrates forward-thinking when it comes to innovation and will help DED in realizing its vision to innovate the business environment and accelerate growth.”

Mohammed AlShehhi, Deputy CEO, Corporate Support Services sector in DED: commented: “The Department of Economic Development is continuously working to promote excellence in the provision of electronic and smart services in collaboration with public as well as private sector partners. We will continue to work together to activate various DED services and we appreciate the support of our partners in achieving the vision and strategy of Dubai to advance economic development and promote smart services to make the emirate globally competitive.”

“Through launching the new system we aim to bring our contracts and procurement management to eSupply, the central procurement system of the Dubai Smart Government. Access to data and information in the system will be provided to all our stakeholders and companies dealing with DED and its agencies in due course. This will create a competitive procurement environment by cutting cost and effort as well as expediting decision-making,” added AlShehhi.

Over the past 2 years, DED and Tejari have had a strong relationship in utilizing procurement sourcing technology through the full automation of its tender committee’s work and supplier bid evaluation process.

Tejari provides a market leading global strategic procurement platform that helps more than 650 companies and 150,000 purchasing professionals worldwide unlock the power of procurement to drive financial performance, build procurement organizational excellence, manage risk, and influence innovation.
