Dubai Municipality awarded with an exceeding seven stars rating recognition for their “Digital Transformation in Contracts” project
“Exceeding Seven Stars” is considered the highest rating in the evaluation of participating projects following the global trade approach within the “Dubai We Learn” initiative for institutional education and reference comparisons. The program has been implemented by the Dubai Government Excellence Program of the General Secretariat of the Executive Council of the Emirate of Dubai.
Dubai Municipality initiated the digital contract project to facilitate and digitize all of its transactions with suppliers to reduce the contract lifecycle, increase efficiency, increase compliance, reduce risk and provide full transparency. The project is a result of a long-term partnership with Tejari, which is a strategic partner of Dubai Municipality.
Mohamed Mubarak Al Mutaiwee, who is the Executive Director of the Support Sector in Dubai Municipality and sponsor of the winning team, praised the team’s efforts and their endeavors to achieve victory. He said, “Winning the Seven Star rating continues the approach of innovation to enhance Dubai Municipality’s journey towards excellence.”

About Dubai Municipality
Dubai Municipality was founded in 1954 commencing its activities with a cadre of seven employees undertaking simple tasks to keep the city clean. The first decree establishing the Municipality was issued on February 28, 1957, whereby 23 municipal council members were appointed from the elders of the country and traders. It gave the Municipality specific powers, the most important of which was to take care of health and architectural affairs of the city as well as to organize construction and beautification of the city and provide constructive suggestions to the government.
Dubai Municipality has developed significantly since then, evolving over the years and taking on multiple tasks. The Municipality grew in line with the expansion of the Emirate of Dubai, currently it has 11,000 employees working in 34 departments. It is one of the largest governmental institutions in terms of services rendered and projects executed. The municipality is a leading driver of growth and evolution of the Emirate of Dubai.
