The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Ghana, has commended the government for the passing into law of the amended procurement law (Act 914).
A statement issued and signed by Rev. G.D. Mensah, FCILT President CILT in Accra yesterday said, “CILT Ghana specifically would like to appreciate the invaluable roles played by bodies such as Public Procurement Authority, Parliament, various organisations and individuals who submitted memoranda to enrich the document and most importantly its assent by President John Mahama.”
It said CILT Ghana had taken notice of a number of innovative insertions into the law such as sustainable procurement, upward review of the procurement thresholds, contract framework, e-procurement and reconstitution of the Entity Tender Committees (ETCs) to include professional bodies, among others.
“It is the view of the institute that the inclusion of professional bodies to serve on the ETCs will add value to the procurement process as these bodies will bring expertise to help enrich these ETCs. CILT Ghana is available to offer its un-paralleled knowledge in the logistics, supply chain and transport sectors to any Ministry, Department and Agency (MDA) that may require it to serve on its ETC.”
The CILT advised MDAs to verify the membership status of any professional that it directly appoints to serve on any ETC to ensure their credibility.
