The new method gives indicators of Omanisation prices electronically. It has a colour coding method – green for attaining the target, yellow for meeting the target halfway and red for not meeting the target at all. Khawla bint Ghadir al Janibiya, director of the project for building the perform permit method at MoM, stated, “The new system will help to improve Omanisation rates in private sector establishments. This will be achieved by ensuring the maximum and minimum rate of Omanisation in different economic activity categories.”
She stated that the new method shows Omanisation price when applications for perform permits are submitted by establishments. “If Omanisation price of a firm is ‘green’, then it has accomplished the target. The request will be transferred straight to the stage of automatic accreditation.
“If it is ‘yellow’, the firm’s Omanisation rate lies somewhere in between. The application of the establishment will then be transferred to the Omanisation Section for approval and thereafter to the Licensing Department for review. The decision for approval or rejection or request for an update of the application will then be taken up accordingly.”
Khawla stated that if the Omanisation price is ‘red’, ‘this means that the establishment had not achieved the minimum Omanisation rate’. “In such a scenario, the establishment will be shut down. It can be reopened only after it achieves Omanisation rate of ‘green’ or ‘yellow’.”
