The Special Economic Zone Authority of Duqm in coordination with businessgateways, has launched the SEZAD e-Tendering Portal system and Certification mechanism on the Joint Supplier Registration System (JSRS) hosted on www.businessgateways.com. The SEZAD Certification applies to all Omani SMEs who are already registered with SEZAD or wish to register to work and have access to tenders being released from SEZAD’s contractors working on projects in Duqm.
Below is the new process you will need to follow to have access to tenders from government entities / investors who are registered with the JSRS as well as SEZAD contractors within the Special Economic Zone Authority of Duqm.
A workshop will be conducted as per the details at the bottom of this email.However, should you want to register immediately, you can follow the steps below:
1. Your first step to apply for SEZAD Certification, is to be registered and certified on JSRS. To register on JSRS, visit www.businessgateways.com and register your company. A fee of OMR 50 for Micro Companies, and OMR 100 for Small & Medium Companies apply. This fee is valid for THREE Years.

Workshop for SMEs
