Abstract: This study examines the extent to which the Colleges of Education (COEs) in Ghana comply with one of the key provisions; transparency in the Public Procurement Act 663 of Ghana. A questionnaire survey was conducted among 53 tender committee members in seven COEs in Ashanti Region, Ghana. Respondents were interviewed using tools for assessing transparency which were spelt out in five thematic areas. Data obtained was analysed through percentages, mean scores and relative importance indices. Findings show that the average percentage level of compliance with the transparency provisions in Act 663 among the COEs is 77.4%, indicating that the COEs complied with the transparency provisions in the Act 663. Findings from this study should encourage people in managerial positions in all sectors where procurement is carried out within Ghana to ensure that they comply with the transparency provisions in the act to help fight the menace of corruption.
