Title: Investigating Procurement Challenges in Colleges of Education in Ghana
Authors: Agbenyega, Moses
Issue Date: 24-Feb-2015
Abstract: The assessment of procurement challenges in Colleges of Education was a study conducted to improve on the sanity in the procurement activities in the Colleges. The objectives pursued were to identify procurement challenges encountered in the Colleges and to suggest measures to surmount the procurement challenges encountered in the Colleges. A sample of 42 procurement practitioners were selected using clusters sampling of the political regions and purposive sampling technique for 6 Procurement tender committee members from each college. Findings were that 28 procurement challenges were identified and arranged in order of magnitude by mean score rating. The ratings ranged from 4.8 representing “strongly agree” to 2.1 representing “disagree” indicating that not all procurement challenges identified were found in literature works with the Colleges of Education in Ghana. In addition, the findings also reviled that out of the 28 procurement challenges identified, 2 were strongly agreed, 19 agreed and 7 disagreed to the procurement challenges in the Colleges of Education in Ghana. The researcher found the following recommendation worthwhile considering that; there should be good procurement plan for all the resources ahead of time; proper step should be instituted to deter public officers from interfering in procurement activities; tendering should be made open; there should be training and education packages to update and develop the procurement knowledge and skills of staff and suppliers; public procurement methods, procedures and thresh holds should be simplified and above all establish good relationship among the procurement stakeholders.
