ASSEMBLY STAFF SCHOOLED ON PROCUREMENT AND INVENTORY PROCEDURES

Staff of the Ellembelle District Assembly have been trained in procurement processes as well as inventory and asset management in Nkroful the District Capital.
Addressing participants, the facilitator, Mr. Brandsford Gidigah spelt out the new features in the procurement act, thresholds and approvals, new directions of PPA as well as the overview of the amended Act.
He indicated that it was essential for entities to abide by the provisions of the Public Procurement Act as a breach in the Act had the tendency of landing offenders in serious legalities.
He pointed out that procurement structures were legal and must be complied at all levels of transactions adding that the Act, has made things easier for public institutions as it is a guide in ensuring that the procedures are adhered to for effective and efficient use of state resources.
Mr. Kyei who took staff through assent and inventory management explained the fixed asset register, types of fixed assets to be captured, fixed asset management policy among others.
He pointed out that the essence of keeping a fixed assets register was to enable organizations keep proper records to all its assets for easy reference. He cited the case of transition from one government to another, that when there is a workable fixed assets register, there would not be the need for people to chase up to know who has what because the details of all properties would be spelt out in the register.
The Human Resource Manager for the Assembly Ms. Adwoa Serwaa Boakye indicated that the training was essential to enlighten staff on other aspects apart from their line of duty adding that when one was abreast with little information in other disciplines, it boosts their output.
She said that participants were drawn from procurement, budget, health, education, social welfare, non-formal, NADMO, Central Administration and other parts of the Assembly.
She added that the training was expected to impart about one Hundred (100) Participant for improved work delivery at the Assembly.
