ADNOC In-Country Value (ICV) Certification

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) have recently launched the In-Country Value (ICV) strategy, which aims to strengthen relationships with the UAE’s private sector. Businesses must now complete an ICV assessment as part of their partnership with ADNOC, which will form part of the tender evaluations and award process.

Introduced in February 2018, the new strategy is procurement led and designed to increase ADNOC’s ICV contribution. In order to do this, they will be focusing on the selection of local suppliers, the development of UAE nationals and the localisation of critical functionalities in the oil and gas industry.

ADNOC will undertake a series of strategic initiatives as the ICV strategy continues to develop. These will include:

  • Strategic identification of suppliers and long-term collaboration
  • Developing of key procurement categories for small and medium sized local companies
  • Sharing future CAPEX and OPEX spending plans to encourage investment in the UAE
  • Focused training programs facilitated for Emiratis, increasing the employability of the local workforce
