Ofori Atta Petitioned To Provide Details On Alleged Gh¢2.75bn Procurementsavings [GACC News]

The Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition with 20 other Civil Society Groups have petitioned the Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, for further and better particulars on the over GH¢2bn reportedly saved through the review of sole-sourced and restrictive tendering contracts.
The Finance Minister while delivering the 2019 mid-year budget review in Parliament announced that some GH¢ 2.75 billion had been saved through thorough scrutiny of sole-sourced contracts as well as contracts awarded through restrictive tendering.

The Minister has since not provided details on the contracts or information on which specific procurement the savings were made on.But the civil society groups say they want the full list of contracts from which the savings were made.

Sulemana Braimah, who is the Executive Secretary of the Media Foundation for West Africa, one of the petitioners told Citi News that making such information public will be instructive to the public and provide guidance in future procurement applications.
