Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries Company (DRPIC) has mandated the EPCs of the three packages and their entire contractors supply chain to utilise the Joint Supplier Registration System (JSRS) Contracts Management System for all their SME/LCC Obligation Contract Award process.
The JSRS Contracts Management System (JSRS CMS) hosted on www.businessgateways.com would provide support to Duqm Refinery to monitor the effective Spend Disbursement for SMEs / LCCs from its valued Project.
At an Awareness Seminar recently hosted by Duqm Refinery and Business Gateways International for their Contracting Community of Suppliers, Duqm Refinery announced the Cut-Off Date as June 23, 2019 to bring the mandate to effect. As a result, beyond June 23, 2019, contractors will have to compulsorily engage the Contracts Award process on the JSRS CMS in order to demonstrate their commitment to support the SME/LCC of Oman.
In order to address the effective implementation of this SME/LCC Obligation, Duqm Refinery and Business Gateways have embarked on an intensive engagement and training initiative for its EPC Contractors and their subcontractors. This initiative has been well received by Duqm Refinery’s EPC Consortiums such as Technicas, Petrofac, and Saipem who have already commenced instructing their subcontractors to utilise the JSRS CMS. It is to be noted that SMEs / LCCs who are awarded the Contracts should be JSRS Certified as a prerequisite.
