In-Country Value Program (ICV)

ADNOC has launched an In-Country Value (ICV) program to provide an impetus to the country’s economy by supporting local businesses. An extension of ADNOC’s 2030 strategy, the program aims to propel economic diversification and employment opportunities for UAE nationals and ARDENT is delighted to be part of ADNOC’s vision.

ADNOC strongly encourages its suppliers to undertake an ICV evaluation process to obtain an ICV certification. While it is not compulsory to hold an ICV certificate to participate in ADNOC Group tenders, suppliers with an ICV certificate will have an advantage during the tendering process (suppliers without the certificate will be considered to have 0% ICV). ARDENT is proud to be accredited by ADNOC for awarding this certificate.

ADNOC has provided its suppliers with a Submission Template. This template should be populated by data from the suppliers’ audited financial statements with information mostly available through their ERP / Accounting system. ARDENT will perform a standard set of procedures prescribed by ADNOC on the populated data and issue a factual report with the ICV certificate with a validity of 18 months. We encourage the suppliers to complete the attached questionnaire to enable us to assess the effort and complexity for the certification to provide a competitive fee and accurate timeline for completing the certification work.
