Title: Compliance with Code of Ethics on Public Procurement in the Department of Feeder Roads
Authors: Govina, Jerry Kobbla
Issue Date: 20-Feb-2015
Abstract: The public procurement process is a huge policy within the discussions of every government given that it involves large acquisition of goods, services and works of a procuring entity with public funds. In some developing countries this accounts for 50-70% of their national budget and about 14% of their Gross Domestic Product. The level of compliance with the code of ethics in public procurement in Ghana specifically at the Department of Feeder Roads (DFR) is the subject of this research. The research investigates the level of compliance, associated challenges and identifiable strategies to improve the compliance of public procurement practices at DFR using a sample of 65 respondents from DFR. The compliance level was found to be high although non-compliance was challenging to quantify; with other challenges such as lack of management support for compliance, inadequate qualified personnel and lack of motivation emerging as key factors. The study recommends that capacity building for staff is key determinant for attainment of optimum successfor compliance with code of ethics in public procurement. The study adopted purposive and convenience sampling method since the target population 105 staff responsible for procurement are known out of which 65 staff selected for this research. Further the research used SPSS version 16.0 and Microsoft Excel 2013 for analyzing the data collected. The responses of the sample population is analyzed and presented in frequency tables, graph and percentages.
