Abstract: This study is carried to ascertain factors affecting public procurement performance at the Kintampo Municipal Assembly. The study was purely qualitative; therefore there was sample size. Interviews were used as a data collective instrument. Five (5) respondents were used as key informants to the study. The data analysis was done by transcribing the responses on the interview guide into themes and meaning drawn from them. procurement performance is a major hindrance to both private and public sectors in organization growth. Poor procurement performance in the public and private sectors has been a problem due to unprofessional staff, traditional procedures and inability to embrace electronic procurement, poor coordination of activities, lack of quality assurance policies ad lack of proper regulations, lack of established procurement plans. The findings of the study also disclosed that lack of expertise, political interference, weak institutional structures, inability to implement, monitor policies and laws are the most significant factors affecting procurement performance in the public sectors in Ghana. The study therefore recommends that the assembly established a procurement department to managed by a qualified person, train staff regularly, provide guidelines for practitioners, create procurement websites to improve procurement system.
