It is one of the basic criteria for accepting the bidders’ documents.
It also stipulates the provision of project data in the authority to the MADLSA in order for the ministry to inspect the progress of procedures for the payment of workers’ wages.
Companies are also obligated to issue a certificate from Qatar Credit Bureau on the their financial position, explaining the extent of its commitment to banks and customers.
