The PAU is required to, among other things, establish and publish annually a central database of persons and entities involved in petroleum activities in Uganda and prohibits any entity or entity from providing goods, works, or services for oil and gas activities unless they are registered on the database.
We note from the publication that PAU has undertaken this registration process since 2017 when the process was still manual to a web-based application system, where applicants are required to visit the PAU website and upload the information required for registration.
We took advantage of the 2019, call for applications to be qualified and registered to the NSD which remained open from 1st September 2018 until 30th June 2019. We already knew that the PAU works with the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), and National Social Security Fund (NSSF) in the verification of Entities and persons to be registered on the National Supplier Database (NSD).
This process requires ONLY online applications uploaded with an accompaniment of Certificate of incorporation or registration, Tax Clearance Certificate for companies registered or incorporated in Uganda issued by Uganda Revenue Authority, Tax Clearance Certificate or its equivalent for companies registered or incorporated outside Uganda, National Social Security Clearance Certificate and Proof of compliance with Social Security. You will also need to submit your Banker’s Reference Letter.
