Dismayed Ghana Institute of Procurement & Supply (GIPS) has called on the President to as a matter of expediency sponsor the passage of an Act to grant a Charter to the Institute.

GIPS says the formation of a Governing Council will regulate the conduct of professional procurement practice and the licensure of membership. 

Their comment follows the Public Procurement Authority CEO, Adjenim Boateng Adjei, a senior member of the Institute allegedly caught in acts of conflicts of interests and violations to the Public Procurement Act 2003 (ACT 663), as amended. 

The Institute in a statement Thursday said following a meeting of the Governing Council and the Ethics & Professional Standards Committee of the Institute, disciplinary processes have been activated as per its constitution and code of conduct.
