Ghana: Public Procurement Authority (PPA)

The Ghana Public Procurement Authority (PPA) tracks information in the Ghana Electronic Procurement System (GHANEPS).

GHANEPS is in the process of being rolled out. Currently, few contracting processes are managed using the system.

GHANEPS is legally covered by the Public Procurement Act No. 633 2003 as amended with Act No. 914 2016. The Act regulates the procurement of goods, works and services financed, in whole or in part, from public funds and the disposal of government stores. All government agencies, institutions and establishments in which the government has a majority interest are mandated to comply with the Act.

The key exceptions to which the scope of application of the Act is subject are in respect of the following;

  • procurement with international obligations arising from a grant or concessionary loan to government which shall be in accordance with the terms of the grant or loan subject to review and ‘no objection’ to the procurement procedures by the Public Procurement Authority (the Authority); and
  • procurement arising from an external loan and commercial facility secured by government other than a concessionary loan and grant which specifies in particular the procurement procedures which shall be subject to the prior review and ‘no objection’ to those procurement procedures by the Authority.

Procuring entities under the Act have responsibility for the procurement of goods, works and services for prescribed threshold values set out in the schedules to the Act.

GHANEPS is also covered by the National Information Technology Act, 2008 (Act 771), the Electronic Transactions Act, 2008 (Act 772 and the Data Protection Act, 2012 (Act 843).
