Gulf News - GLOBAL RECKONING FOR UAE ENOC.
Twelve delegates from Emirates National Oil Company, or Enoc, have received MCIPS accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply, an internationally-recognised award that signals procurement proficiency.
MCIPS was awarded to recipients during a recent ceremony and was the result of the successful completion of the CIPS Oil and Gas Advanced Practitioner Programme - a targeted programme for the oil and gas sector. The programme is an accredited, modular training programme tailored to a specific organisation or industry.
The Enoc delegates represent the largest group of practitioners to be added by a single company in the UAE, to date. Sam Achampong, general manager of CIPS Middle East and North Africa, said: "Procurement professionals are currently in an extremely powerful position. Procuring services and resources at the right time and at the right price, are pivotal to organisational success... We are delighted to award Enoc's delegates with their MCIPS designation."
Sina Khoory, Enoc executive director for its Shared Services Centre, said: "This accreditation comes as a testament of Enoc's commitment towards enhancing human capital development. Our procurement and contracts team will be in a better position to support Enoc's corporate objectives and ensure sustainable growth."
