“Realities of public sector procurement: A case study of two Polytechnics in Ghana.”


This study was undertaken to assess the extent to which the procurement function is involved in the delivery of the Polytechnic mandate in Ghana. Both primary and secondary data were used. Open ended interviews were used in data collection whereas thematic analysis was applied in data analyses. The research identified that there is well established laws and policies guiding procurement activities, best value for money practices and adequate human resource capacity. However logistics such as vehicles, fax, photo copier machines as well as scanners, telephones and printers are not available in the offices of the procurement function, there is also serious misunderstanding of the procurement process by users and students causing confrontations and procurement departments performing operational but not strategic functions.
