Description The Oman Power and Water Procurement Company, (OPWP), has issued a Request for Selection (RfS) for developing two utility-scale solar PV projects at Manah, Sultanate of Oman. In the second phase of its solar program, the OPWP was invited private developers for Manah-I and Manah-II projects, each with an installed capacity between 500 MW and 600 MW. The projects are to be developed by independent power producers (IPPs). The projects will be located at Manah, 150 kilometers southwest of Muscat. The OPWP will be responsible for procuring the power and selling it the Sultanate of Oman. The bid closing date is August 26, 2019. There has been increasing activity in the Middle East with solar project tender announcements, investments as well as announcements of solar project completion. Mercom had reported recently that a consortium of Kuwait and Saudi Arabian companies won the bid to develop 500 MW of large utility-scale solar independent power projects located at Ibri in Oman, built at an approximate value of $400 million. The Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), a state-owned oil producer in Oman, announced allotment of a 100 MW solar project to the Marubeni Consortium, comprising the Marubeni Corporation, as the lead founder, Oman Gas Company S.A.O.C, Bahwan Renewable Energy Company LLC, and Modern Channels Services LLC. Last year in November, OPWP had initiated the process for the second utility-scale solar PV project to be connected to the main interconnected system in Oman. The project, with a capacity between 500 MW to 1,000 MW, will be known as Solar 2022 IPP. OPWP had sought proposals from interested bidders to provide technical consultancy services for the development of the project and to advise on the competitive tendering of the project. Oman’s power sector regulator, the Authority for Electricity Regulation Oman (AER) is also taking steps to pave the way for homeowners to install rooftop solar panels with any surplus electricity sent back into the national grid. A study commissioned by the Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW) revealed that solar systems installed on residential buildings in the Sultanate could offer an estimated 1.4 GW of electricity annually.

Description US-headquartered global infrastructure firm Aecom has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide project management consultancy services for Phase 1 of Neom Bay, part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s plans for “Neom”, a $500bn high-tech economic zone to be built from scratch in the country’s north west on the coasts of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aqaba. Neom Bay Phase 1 is intended as the first showcase of the Neom vision, comprising several thousand residential units, leisure, retail, commercial, public and entertainment facilities, Aecom said today. It will provide project management, contract administration, technical and environmental support services, and site supervision over the design and construction phases of the project, located at a 45 sq km area at Neom Bay. First announced in 2017 as part of bin Salman’s “Vision 2030” plan to attract investment and diversify the Saudi economy away from oil, the scheme was envisaged as a 26,500 sq km haven for futuristic business sectors that stretched into Egyptian and Jordanian territory. The name “Neom” is derived from the shortening of the Arabic term for “new future”. It fell into controversy in October last year following the murder of Saudi dissident journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, when a number of high-profile figures, including the architect Norman Foster, suspended their involvement in the Neom advisory board. “We are delighted that Neom has chosen Aecom to drive the delivery of this significant project,” said Ian Laski, president and CEO, Aecom Arabia, adding Aecom had begun mobilising local and global resources for the project. On Sunday, 30 June the first flight took off from the new Neom Bay Airport, built to serve the Neom zone. Saudi Arabian Airlines said it will operate two flights a week from Neom to Riyadh.

Description The Regulations governing public procurement have a bearing on both the Procuring Entity (PE) and on the bidder with the former expected to design the procurement rules which the later should follow. The decentralisation of procurement decision making means that each PE is now responsible for managing its procurement requirements. To this end, it is critical for all PE staff involved in public procurement to have appropriate knowledge and skills to achieve the best outcomes. Competent staff must possess both skills and knowledge about the new law. Responsibility for procurement Section 14(1) of the PPDPA Act states that each PE shall be responsible for managing its procurement, where the value of the procurement requirement is below the prescribed financial thresholds stated below; (a) US$200 000, in the case of construction works; or (b) US$100 000, in the case of goods; or (c) US$50 000, in the case of consultancy and non-consultancy services; PEs shall be responsible for managing their own procurement. For procurements above these financial thresholds, PE’s must obtain authorisation from PRAZ to conduct procurement. Authorisation to conduct procurement Section 15 (1) prohibits a PE from conducting any procurement in which the value of the procurement requirement is at or above the prescribed threshold unless the procuring entity has been authorised by the Authority. This restriction means that every procuring entity that conduct procurement should have applied for authorisation to conduct procurement after January 1, 2018. Authorisation to conduct procurement shall be given in writing; and may be subject to such terms and conditions as the Authority may specify in the authorisation; and shall be valid for a period of two years from the date on which it is given, and may be renewed for further such periods. In other words, authorisation may be conditional and subject to renewal every two years. Application for Authorisation Requirements The Third Schedule to the Act provides the requirements for the applications. These are: a) The nature of procurement proceedings to be conducted by the procuring entity that is the Procurement Plan; and b) The assignment of responsibilities for procurement within the procuring entity’s organisation that is the organisational structure; and c) The identity of the procuring entity’s accounting officer; and d) The structure of the procuring entity’s Procurement Management Unit and names of individuals that may be used in evaluation committees; and e) The procuring entity’s facilities for conducting procurement proceedings that is address and location of PMU that is procurement reports; and f) Particulars of procurement proceedings conducted by the procuring entity during the preceding two years; and g) Such other information as may be required in the application form or as the Authority may reasonably require. The Authority may in relation to a procuring entity that fails to obtain authorisation to initiate or conduct any procurement proceedings at or above the prescribed threshold appoint another procuring entity so authorised to conduct such procurement on behalf of the first mentioned entity. Renewal of authorisation Before the expiry of its authorisation, a procuring entity must apply to the Authority for renewal of the authorisation. On the other hand, the Authority shall continuously assess the following: (a) The continued capacity of authorised procuring entities to conduct procurement proceedings; and (b) The compliance of authorised procuring entities with the terms and conditions of their authorisation; If the Authority considers that the entity no longer has the capacity to conduct procurement proceedings, or is contravening or failing to comply with any material term or condition of its authorisation, the Authority may cancel the authorisation or direct the entity to rectify the non-compliance, or may take such other measures to remedy the situation as the Authority considers necessary or desirable. However, before cancelling a procuring entity’s authorisation, the Authority shall notify the entity concerned of the proposed cancellation and the reasons for it, and shall give the entity a reasonable opportunity to make representations in the matter. Sensitisation workshop In order to capacitate its stakeholders on the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Act, PRAZ will be conducting a Breakfast Meeting Sensitisation Workshop on April 25, 2019 at ZITF in Hall 2. The Authority’s stakeholders who would like to participate may contact PRAZ on the contact details above.
