The Public Procurement Authority (PPA) has announced the results of its annual public procurement assessment of entities and has revealed the non-compliance with the Public Procurement Act, 2003 Act 663).
It said the assessment showed that entities that were geographically distant from PPA’s offices performed poorly in relation to adherence to the law compared to their counterparts that had access to PPA’s advisory services.
According to the authority to counter this phenomenon, it had extended its physical presence throughout the country by strategically zoning the country into Northern, Mid-Ghana, Eastern, Western and Greater Accra.
It also noted among other things they would serve as focal points for the dissemination of PPA’s policies and conduct and regular monitoring of entities.
In addition, the zonal offices will provide professional guidance in the areas of drafting and executions of effective public procurement plan, facilitate capacity building and assist in the periodic assessment of activities that will inform policy decisions
