Our priority is to maximise Omani goods, works and services. To achieve this, our procurement team has established practices focused on sourcing Omani goods and services within our Contract and Procurement Strategy.

These practices include

  • Making use our extensive knowledge of the local market
  • Correct sizing of contract scopes to match supplier’s current capabilities, where possible
  • Ensuring that each project takes a realistic view regarding the goods and services available from Omani entities, and where not available seek to identify potential development opportunities
  • Support development of Omani suppliers and service providers

Strategies to Support Omani Suppliers

To make ICV successful and to ensure preference is given, where possible and appropriate preference is given to Omani Tenderers. The Procurement Plan will consider that the following initiatives are adopted wherever possible:

  • Pre-qualification of Omani suppliers and contractors owned by Omani nationals.
  • Evaluation of the potential Omani suppliers to confirm they are technically approved by our customers and meet quality, deliverability and reliability requirements
  • Inclusion of Omani suppliers in all tenders where possible
  • Promotion of partnering between Omani suppliers and international suppliers to enable the scope to be delivered

Joint Supplier Registration System (JSRS)

We are registered with Business Gateways’ Joint Supplier Registration System for the Oman oil and gas industry. We utilise this portal for local procurement by identifying Omani vendors and suppliers are registered with the system and the products and services offered.

If you are a local supplier or service provider who want to work with TOCO, please ensure that you register with the JSRS system and approach our Supply Chain Department.
