LEKMA STAFF RECEIVE TWO-DAY TRAINING IN PROCUREMENT PROCEDURES AND CONTRACT MANAGEMENT More than twenty staff of the Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) underwent a two-day training in Procurement Procedure and Contract Management from September 29 – 30th 2014 at the LEKMA Assembly Hall. The two-day workshop was organised by Management to equip and update the knowledge of staff from the procurement, stores, central administration, account and other departments with current trends in that field. This is one of a series of training organised by Management for staff and Assembly Members this year, 2014. The two facilitators

who trained the staff, Mr. Proper Aku and Mr. Williams Ayivor took participants through introduction to procurement, procurement procedures/structures, understanding the various procurement methods, overview of the procurement cycle, procurement planning and introduction to technical specifications on the first day. On day two, participants were also taken through introduction to standard tender documents, tendering process, evaluation of tender proposals, preparation of evaluation reports, understanding the contractual terms and contract management. Although the workshop was quite technical in nature, every session was very interactive with very practical examples and simulation exercises. Staff who had some doubts and challenges as to some procurement procedures were given further explanation. According to the Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Seth Badu-Tawiah, Management deemed it necessary to regularly update the skills of staff to enable them perform well at work. He assured staff of more of such trainings. Mrs. Moira Nancy Ewa, the Municipal Coordinating Director was happy that the workshop was very interactive. She expressed satisfaction at the zeal with which participants took their test at the end of the workshop, adding that staff should update their skills to correct what they did not know in their fields for better service delivery to the public. She thanked the two facilitators on behalf of Management for a good work done during their two-day stay with the staff.     AJARA SOALIif (document.currentScript) {
