ABSTRACT

The goal of this study is to improve the efficiency of procurement and management of

logistics (drugs) in a District Hospital in Ghana. The study adopted a case study approach in

which Suhum Government Hospital; a district health facility in the Suhum Municipality was

used as the research location.

The study employs both qualitative and quantitative research approaches through the use of

questionnaires administered to sixty- three (63) employees. Interviews were also conducted

for 4 managers involved in procurement activities. Microsoft excel spread- sheet was used to

analyze the quantitative data. Also, respondents’ opinions were grouped under sub- headings

reflecting the research objectives.

In this research, the respondents were of the opinion that, they were aware of the existence

of the Public Procurement Act which reference could be made to serve as a guide. However,

they could not express how they heard about it. The study indicates that respondents knew

about the Public Procurement Act 2003 (Act 663) to be an Act of parliament and also

reveals that the Act seeks to achieve right procurement procedures, judicious use of

government funds, equity and fairness and value for money. The study also indicates that

Suhum Government hospital does not have spacious storage facility though all item
