Construction Law/UAE Laws on procurement


I have came across on one clauss in out ITB Documents as below:

Article No. 2.3 "Where Materials are available from Abu Dhabi Emirate sources at competitive rates, CONTRACTOR acknowledges that preference shall be given to these sources as per guidelines
and regulations established by the UAE Law.

But what does it exactly mean as per guidelines and regulations by uae law? Where can i find the detailed guidelines / regulations? I've been looking for it but i cant find the exact thing i need. does it covers procurement law in abu dhabi ?

for your assistance.
Thanks a lot.

Dear John

Thanks for this interesting question.

While I understand that "guidelines and regulations by uae law" refers to legality of the material being procured/company's licensing etc; I would advise you to read following article.... Hope this helps.
