ENGINEERING A SUPER-EFFICIENT NEW GENERATION
OF GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT OPERATIONS
MoF develops a digital platform for government procurement

The Ministry of Finance (MoF) is leading the Department of Government Procurement platform initiative, which aims to develop a radical new approach that will make government procurement faster and more accessible, and will promote the engagement of SMEs. It will develop a user-friendly, digitally advanced procurement platform to improve government cost effectiveness and maximise efficiencies.

The innovative Department of Government Procurement is led by His Excellency Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, Minister of State for Financial Affairs, as a forward-looking project initiated in April 2019 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
