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.
