The Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) has received an international Certificate on procurement “Platinum Level” from the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) in the UK, in recognition of the excellent practices in procurement processes and strategic supply’s.
This international certificate is granted to corporates and organizations that have been able to achieve the best international standards in procurement and supply chain approaches, which happens after a series of comprehensive and thorough assessments are conducted by an independent team of auditors.
The certificate was received by H.E. Dr. Yousif Al Sheryani, Acting Executive Director of Planning and Strategic Affairs Office, on behalf of the Director-General of ADEC, in the presence of H.E. Ms. Salama Al Amimi, Executive Director of Organizational Development & Excellence and Acting Executive Director of Support Services at ADEC and Mr. Khalifa Al Obaidly, Procurement & Contracts Division Manager and Mr. Musallam Alameri, Advisor to the Director General’s Office.
“We pride ourselves for being the first government entity in the UAE to obtain this certificate which reflects our commitment to applying the best international practices in procurement and supply. It is my pleasure to congratulate all staff of the Division for their valuable efforts,” said Ms. Al Amimi.
Mr. Khalifa Al Obaidly said that Procurement & Contract Division in ADEC has made great strides in this area, which enabled it to progress and earn the Platinum Level which is considered the highest level any organization could achieve in the area of procurement and supply chain, since the organization’s performance is assessed according to highest international standards, which only a limited number of organizations can attain.
CIPS is recognized as the only leading authority in the world that offers such certification to individuals or entities in the field of procurement, contracts and supply services, with the aim of supporting and developing entities in order to achieve excellence.
Through receiving such a global certification, ADEC has proven to achieve a high level of excellence, being the first UAE organization ever (either government or private) to receive such recognition, the first educational institute in the world, the second institution in the Middle East and Africa and the ninth institution worldwide.
