The Department of Government Support Abu Dhabi is pleased to announce the launch of the Digital Marketplace - Al Maqta'a Portal. 


Organizations interested in doing business with Abu Dhabi Government Entities must complete the registration on the Procurement Gate - information technology platform of the Government for procurement running on SAP Ariba. The registration is a one-time activity centralized for Abu Dhabi Government Entities. Once registered, the profiles of suppliers are visible to buyers from all entities operating through the Procurement Gate.


The supplier registration process consists of the following stages:




There are two ways to raise the ‘Supplier Request’ which starts the registration process. The relevant route to follow depends on the status of a supplier.


  • 1. Abu Dhabi DED (AD-DED) Licensed Suppliers

    All suppliers with valid Abu Dhabi DED License are eligible to start their registration process by raising a ‘Self–Registration Request.’ To do so please click on the link below to access a “Self-Registration Request” form.


  • Please click on the link below to access the webpage to raise “Self-Registration Request”


  • 2. Non-Abu Dhabi DED (non AD-DED) Licensed Suppliers

    Suppliers who do not have a valid Abu Dhabi DED (AD-DED) license should request one of the Abu Dhabi Government Entities to submit an ‘Entity–Raised Registration Request’ on their behalf to start the registration process.

  • Please click here to find out what information is required by entities to submit an ‘Entity-Raised Registration Request’ on behalf of a supplier. Interested suppliers are required to provide these information to an entity they want to work with.

    • Tax Registration Certificate (or valid justification on Company Letterhead, if tax registration is not applicable)

    • Authorization on Company Letterhead for the person authorized to provide registration information on behalf of the supplier

Did you know

Qualification conducted as a part of the supplier registration process is not equivalent to shortlisting for tenders. It does not guarantee business with any Abu Dhabi Government Entity. Abu Dhabi Government Entities may conduct their own screening and technical evaluation during tenders.


Frequently asked questions

Any updates to Supplier Profile must go through Ariba; Supplier administrator tab has been removed from the DOF Online portal (ADERP) and suppliers cannot modify details on ADERP anymore.

You will receive an email from Ariba highlighting the nature of ‘Additional / accurate Information’ required from you to complete the ‘Supplier Registration’

Post it’s Go Live on 21st April 2019, only Supplier Registration is currently functional in SAP Ariba. All other Sourcing & Procurement functionalities (such as tenders, invoices, POs etc.) are still operational in ADERP and have not been changed in any manner.

If you are not receiving emails from SAP Ariba, there are a few probable causes:

  1. The email addresses the emails are being sent to is incorrect.

  2. Your email notification settings are not configured properly.

  3. Your company's email server is blocking the emails from arriving
