|Abstract: ||Procurement plays a very vital role in economical growth and development of any country if well managed. The major Problem contributing to the poor performance of procurement of goods, Works and services in award of contract is that, there have not been compliance with the policies and regulations of the Act.(663) public procurement Act(2003) Act 663. This research is aimed at identifying strategies for improving procurement processes in the award of contracts in public sector procurement. The study suggests that effective procurement processes are measures of improving procurement processes and performance in award of contract. To achieve the objective of the study, 5 managerial staff members in each of the 7 Municipal assemblies in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana were targeted as respondents to provide the needed information for the study. This comprised municipal coordinating directors, planning officers, finance officers, engineers and the head of procurement unit. The findings of this study revealed that lack of expertise in an organization, poor communication, ambiguity in role clarification, insufficient budget allocation, incredible information provided by the contractors and delays in budget allocation are the problems militating against procurement entities in the award of contracts. The study outlined recommendations for improving the procurement processes in the award of contracts in public sector procurement.
