Workshops demonstrate how new system will save ‘considerable’ time and effort
Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) says its newly launched electronic platform will streamline tendering for construction firms working in the emirate.

Detailed and comprehensive information will be available to all subcontractors and suppliers on the awarded projects including the scope of work and materials required for each project.
The organisation says subcontractors will be able to contact the main contractors through the e-platform to “express their intent to engage in execution of these works or supply the materials as per the approved specifications”.
To raise awareness, Musanada organised two-day workshops for a large number of main construction contractors to explain the basis and criteria related to floating tenders electronically. Training was given to participants to explains how to manage tenders and design e-bids, in addition to the evaluation requirements and the registration process.
