Abstract: In 2003, the Government of Ghana put together the main Public Procurement Act currently used in Ghana and enacted the Act to fight against and overcome shortcomings inPublic Procurement process. The new structure was also intended to foster competition, efficiency, transparency and accountability in the tendering Process of Public Entities. However compliance by the entities has been the greatest challenge in the attainment of the said objectives. The research therefore assessed the level of compliance of tendering procedures of public procurement entities for works using National Competitive Tendering at the Estate Management Department of the Ghana Health Service office in Accra. Compliance/Performance measuring tool for assessing tendering procedures from the invitation to tender to the award of contract for works under the National Competitive Tendering was used with regards to the dictates of the PPA 663. The overall compliance/performance of 78% was achieved at the Estate Management Department of the Ghana Health Service which showed that compliance level obtained was good but much work needs to be done to improve compliance of tendering procedures at the entity. Explanatory research was used to provide a better understanding to the situation with explanatory typologies method used to analyse and explained the indicative assessment level of compliance of tendering procedures. To improve compliance and ensure smooth implementation of the Act, the following, were recommended: The Public Procurement Authority should partner with all Stakeholders to ensure that award of contracts are published in newspapers of national circulation; all documents relating to the tendering procedures should be recorded; Public Procurement Authority should adopt a compliance assessment tool to measure compliance of entities; the Public Procurement Authority should undertake vigorous information dissemination to all stakeholders and training of iii selected procurement staff as trainers and involving them in delivering training for procurement entities.
