The Tender Board has a pivotal and fundamental role in enhancing the local added value in government tenders by organizing and managing tenders and providing services in a transparent and professional manner, in order to achieve high levels of satisfaction among suppliers and contractors, the board president Shaikh Nayef bin Khalid Al Khalifa has said.

He stressed the board's commitments as he received Youth and Sports Minister Aymen Al Moayyad.

The minister congratulated Shaikh Nayef on his appointment and reviewed ways to enhance cooperation between the board and the ministry through holding training courses for the procurement department employees in the ministry on procedures and tenders.

The courses would aim to improve the performance of the employees in securing government procurement of the best quality and for competitive prices, and thus ensure the optimal use of public funds, the meeting discussed.

The minister lauded the keenness of the Tender Board on efforts to achieve the Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 by consolidating transparency through the direct broadcasting of the opening of tenders and publishing all final bids on the Board's website.
