DUBAI, 9th April, 2018 (WAM) -- Emirates Transport, ET, has partnered with Tejari and JAGGAER, the leader in e-procurement solutions, to develop an electronic platform which will offer suppliers the opportunity to compete for the supply of goods and services to the federal transport corporation.
The three-year contract was signed at ET’s head office in Dubai by Mohammed Abdullah Al Jarman, General Manager of Emirates Transport, and Abdullah Al Janahi, Chairman of the Board at Tejari and JAGGAER.
Al Jarman said the cooperation between the two parties for e-auction services will contribute to improving the levels of transparency and free competition between registered suppliers to participate in the tenders offered by Emirates Transport and will enhance the active participation of various suppliers.
He added, "Under this contract, an improved portal will be launched for reverse auctions and new, unified and integrated procedures will be introduced. The ET procurement site will be more dynamic and easy to use and will attract more participants and thus get the best prices available in the market."
Abdullah Al Janahi, Chairman of the Board at Tejari and JAGGAER, said, "We are proud to be selected as a strategic partner of Emirates Transport, which enables us to negotiate directly, thus enhancing efficiency and transparency through our advanced technology platforms.
"Over the next three years, we will provide effective advice to improve business, enhance efficiency in transparency, streamline decision-making and spending with state-of-the-art digital technology and advanced high-speed analytics through a full range of technical services," he added.
It is worth noting that, in 2017, the total value of ET’s procurement was estimated at AED923 million.
