Qatar Energy (Former Qatar Petroleum) has announced the implementation of the In-Country Value Policy in the Energy Sector through “Tawteen”, the localization program for services and industries in Qatar’s energy sector.
The ICV Policy will promote the strategic localization of supply chains, as the tendering and awarding process, where suppliers and contractors who are contributing the most to the local economy will acquire a commercial advantage.
Businesses must now complete an ICV Certification as part of their partnership with TAWTEEN, which will form part of the tendering and awarding process in the energy sector in Qatar. ICV certification is a process to certify supplier or contractor ICV score by independent pre-approved ICV certifiers. Abdul Aziz Al Khalifa & Partners for Accounting & Auditing has been appointed as one of these independent certifiers and can support suppliers with certification of their ICV score.
