Public Procurement

Having been based in the region for many years, CMS has a detailed understanding of the procurement rules and regulations applicable in the Sultanate of Oman. Our highly skilled lawyers can guide you through the public procurement process and advise you how your business may be affected by the public tenders law. We can guide you through complex public tender issues, from the formation and building of bidding consortia, concession contracts and sophisticated PPP projects, through to compliance, investigations and procurement-related disputes and litigation.

Contracting authorities and bidders in local and international procurement procedures, need to rely on legal advice informed by extensive experience on both sides of the process and a deep understanding of how procurement regulates your plans.

In the Middle East and across CMS, our specialists have long-standing sector-expertise across core industries including projects, construction, infrastructure, leisure, hotels and hospitality, transport, and technology, media and communications. This approach means we can resolve your complex public tender issues, including formation and building of bidding consortia, protection of confidential information, anti-trust matters, evaluations, specific rules around framework agreements, concession contracts and complex PPP projects. Further, we can assist regarding feedback and debriefing and how to approach different regulated tender procedures.
