• Procurement of construction works, goods and services in public universities has had numerous challenges over the years. This has been evidenced by high levels of inefficiency and ineffectiveness in the procurement functions. Due to this there are stalled projects in almost every public university, donors have withdrawn funding of some projects and some of the completed ones are of questionable standards. Much has been put in place to streamline the procurement function. For example the Public Procurement and Disposal Act,2005 and the Regulations,2006.The study will reflect major past studies in the literature review that had an effort towards enhancing effectiveness in procurement activities. This will be explained in the theoretical review and will contribute towards identifying research gaps. The study design was descriptive and the target population was employees of public universities especially those working in administration, procurement and finance departments. Stratified random sampling was used to select respondents from the three departments and a suitable sample size was taken to represent the target population.

  • This book is a research work I conducted at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2013. It focuses on procurement issues in Ghana in relation to the Public Procurement Act 2003 Act 663 in relation to project time performance at the pre-contract stage of procuring works. Research findings were conducted in twenty districts of Central Region in Ghana. It looks at how works are procured using the procurement Act 663 through the National Competitive tendering method in relation to Project time performance of construction project. The five chapters in this edited book relate to: factors that define projects time performance; the critical factors affecting time performance at the pre-contract stage of public procurement, and the bottleneck in the Public Procurement Act that hinders project time performance. A delayed contract award could cause a chain reaction of delays on other dependent procurements. This is especially important in project procurement management because it could delay the completion of the project.

  • The South Pacific Rim, located in the Oceania region, is now more than ever before being rapidly integrated into the global economy. The forces of globalization, particularly information and communications technology are the driving factors. While the region is very well known as an exotic tourist destination, little is known about its laws and the potential facilitative commercial, trade and investment environment that exist in the region. International procurement and electronic commerce constitute one such important area. This book discusses international procurement and electronic commerce in the context of South Pacific island countries by illustrating the linkages between theory, law and practice. The book adopts a unique approach to discussing these issues by utilizing extensive case-study analyses which focus on internationally executed ICT-based supply and service contracts, as well as construction and works agreements. In addition, detailed treatment is given the UNCITRAL model law for procurement of goods, construction and services by depicting its relevance to Pacific island countries. The book specifically outlines the interconnection between conventional procurement contracts and traditional customary practices- an important consideration because of the impact of local traditions even on the constitutions of countries of the region. Lastly, the book examines the advancement of digital technology and the role this can play in the overall commercial development of...

  • Scientific Study from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 1.0, Bowen University, language: English, abstract: Direct labour system is one of the several options of procurement used for project delivery process and records shows that it is the oldest procurement system and has been in use in Nigeria far back as the colonial era. It is very prominent in most countries and researchers described it as a system whereby a developer plans and organizes the project delivery process, carries out the design, the planning and procurement of resources and the construction of a project using client employed supervisory staff and labour. This type of system is regarded as in-house because client's staffs as different from contractor's staffs carry out the project delivery process and activities. Idoro, Iyagba and Odusami (2007) asserted that direct labour is mainly used for government projects. The use of the system is a good development in construction because it does not result in high staff strength and overhead costs in the Nigerian construction industry.

  • Geographical Knowledge Construction and Production: Teacher and Student Perspectives is a readable and illuminating account of three high school classrooms in suburban Atlanta, Georgia. It challenges the narrow focus of the Advanced Placement (AP) programme as a tool for admission into colleges and universities in the United States. The research provides insight into the College Board's AP programme and argues for teaching and learning that is transformative and geared toward equipping students with the skills and knowledge necessary to confront the challenges of the 21st century. In particular, it advocates for geographic education that is anchored in the structure of the subject, teasing wherever possible, the contradictions and tensions embedded in the complexities of facts relating to people and places. This book is essential reading for professors and students of education, teachers and students of AP courses, parents, administrators, and state and federal agencies vested in the AP programme.

  • This book examines workplace learning in healthcare settings. Growing and sustaining a healthcare workforce is an area of concern for all those working in the health and education systems. Consequently, understanding the workplace and the learning that takes place within it is fundamental to ongoing workforce strategy and planning. Through case study research this study examines systematically the experience of learners in healthcare settings over a two-year period while on a health studies programme. The findings suggest that the learning environment in these healthcare settings are unpredictable and the learning experience is open to a set of random interconnected variables. With these intrinsically linked variables a model of workplace learning has been proposed and provides a useful way of understanding the complexities that exist in the learning environment, how they interact and the impact they may have on workplace learning.

The specific objectives were to find out if the procurement officers have necessary skills to facilitate the use of e-procurement, to examine the extent of availability of technological infrastructure to support e-procurement and to identify challenges facing CRDB bank in adopting e-procurement. The research design used was case study and a sample of 20 respondents was used. Data were collected using questionnaire and interview. The analysis of findings was done using descriptive statistics and narrative notes whereby tables and charts were used.

The bank personnel have the skills needed to cope with the changes. Conclusively, the study shows that the adoption of e-procurement in private sectors particularly in CRDB bank is feasible. The important thing is for the organizations and their managements to take initiatives on how to i...

  • This research is an illuminative evaluation of a Forest School programme delivered in 36 primary schools in the North East of England between 2011 and 2013. The research aim is to identify what impact this had on the pupils, the teaching and learning and the implications for future good practice in the field. The context of the study is in that of curriculum reform, whereby the emphasis on outdoor, experiential and holistic learning is much reduced in favour of more ‘traditional’, class-based learning of facts. OFSTED, in their new inspection framework, no longer put an emphasis on outdoor learning, with the exception of the Early Years Foundation Stage. In addition to this, the current economic context of much reduced budgets for schools, fewer grants available and the vastly reduced public and voluntary sector means that there is a real danger that programmes such as Forest Schools will become increasingly scarce in English schools. This study aims to demonstrate the value of Forest Schools, what could potentially be lost and the impacts this could have on education, teaching and learning and pupils.

This however is not consistent with the potential which this matter offers with reference to procurement costs and consequently one's own competitive position. In the near future China will advance to become the procurement market par excellence. Today, it already has a large supply base, which in the next few years will lead to China developing into one of the most aggressive competitors in the world. This will lead to an increase in procurement from China.However, it is misplaced to rush into the "adventure" of procurement in China. Thorough preparation is necessary to be successful in the Chinese market. Procurement in China does not only offer opportunities but it is afflicted by risks and problems. The focus of this book is directed towards 5 important problem areas: a lack of market transparency, difficulty in establishing contacts, underdeveloped logistics infrastructure, a lack of product quality, unusual negotiating strategies. The reader is made sensitive to these problem areas. At the same time, it provides practical advice to overcome these problems and gives purchasers useful information and hints in practical business situations.This guid...
