Authors: Budu, Terry
Issue Date: 7-Aug-2014
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify various implementation bottlenecks to the Ghana Public Procurement Act. The study adopted multiple research approaches, including; review of relevant literature, and questionnaire survey of Dormaa East District Assembly in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. The aim of this research is to identify challenges associated with procurement of works at the pre-contract stage under the Public Procurement Act. This can be achieved through critically examining the challenges at planning stage, tendering stage and the award stage of procurement process. The study identified low capacity of procurement professionals, low interaction between procurement entities and Public Procurement Authority (PPA), deliberate controlling of competition, non-compliance with provisions of the law, splitting of contracts into smaller lots, lack of funds and non-cooperativeness of suppliers, as the major challenges militating against the implementation of the Public Procurement Law. The study recommends among others; Decentralization of the PPA, Effective Monitoring of the procurement process, Review of procurement threshold and Timely release of funds.
