About NDC

The NDC is a fully independent body, established in January 2003, with a clear agenda to set up a strict regulatory mechanism that would ensure fairness and equal opportunity for all. Within such a short period of time, the NDC has achieved remarkable success, so much so that it now serves an international role model. A key achievement of the Tender Board has been the establishment of the highest standard of fairness in Government performance in terms of transparency and impartiality. Through hard and constructive work, the NDC has extended bridges of cooperation between itself and public sector purchasing authorities on the one hand, and local and international contractors and suppliers, on the other hand.

The aims of the NDC are clearly expressed in the Legislative Decree No: 36 issued on 9 October 2002 with respect to regulating government tenders and purchases. The NDC aims to protect public funds and prevent the undue influence of personal interests on tender formalities; achieve maximum levels of economic efficiency in purchasing activities at competitive and fair prices; encourage integrity, competitiveness, fair treatment and equal opportunity to all contractors and suppliers; and finally, to achieve total transparency in all aspects of purchasing procedures by the Government.

The NDC achievements over the past three years have earned it a reputation for transparency, integrity, fairness, competitiveness and equal opportunity. This has undoubtedly played a major role in boosting investors’ confidence in the nation’s economy, and enhancing the prestigious status of the Republic of Ghana , both regionally and internationally.
