|Abstract: ||This research assessed the level of compliance with the procurement structure of the Public Procurement Act 2003, (Act 663) in selected public Institutions in the Upper Denkyira East Municipality, Dunkwa-On-Offin. The Act, was enacted in 2003 with the aim of harmonizing public procurement processes and procedures in the public sector, secure judicious, economic and efficient use of state resources, and further, ensure that public procurement is fair, transparent and non discriminatory. The thesis outlined the events leading to reviews, and features of the legal, institutional and regulatory framework of the public procurement reform in Ghana and specifically analyzed section 15 to 20 of the Act, and its potential effect in terms of compliance on public institutions in Upper Denkyira East Municipality, Dunkwa-On-Offin, in the Central Region. A sample of thirty (30) personnel in Health, Educational, Local Government sectors and members of tender and review board committees in the municipality were used. The main tools used for data collection were questionnaires. This research project was guided by research questions set by the researcher. A response rate of 83.33 % was obtained. The data obtained was then analyzed using SPSS descriptive statistics tool which provided a way for knowing what pertains, in terms of the compliance level of the structure of the Act. The results indicate varying degree of compliance. The institutions scored an average compliance rating of 67% which shows that the compliance level obtained is quite good but much work needs to be done to improve compliance level currently existing. However the challenge of creating effective procurement structures and recruiting appropriate personnel to manage procurement process limits the scope for efficiency and value for money.
