New March 2015 Common User Item Pricelist updated and posted to site

PPA Ghana : 08/04/2015

The Public Procurement Authority (PPA) is required by Section 3(p) of the Public Procurement Act, 2003 (act 663) to "maintain a database of Suppliers, Contractors, Consultants and a record of prices to assist in the work of procurement entities. "

In fulfillment of this mandate, PPA collated a list of items procured by Entities. This list known as the Common User Items was published first in March 2010.

The PPA has updated the list of Common User Items with prices as at MARCH 2015.

These prices are meant to be indicative prices and do not serve as the mandatory prices that the items should be purchased at.

Procuring Entities are encouraged to make reference to this list when preparing procurement Plans and during tender evaluation to ensure that realistic prices are being offered.
