|Abstract: ||Sustainable procurement is reviewed from previous works to identify some of the
environmental issues and challenges faced by the procurement officers.
Questionnaires was established on a scales for which the respondents are to use in
administering the questionnaires. This study identified some of the environmental
factors being considered by the MMDA’s during procurement activities and the
challenges they face in implementation of sustainable procurement. The research was
carried out in Upper East Region of Ghana were all the 13 Districts were considered
during the study. Maximum of 26 questionnaires were sent out to be administered by
the procurement officers with in the Districts. Only 20 of the questionnaires were
retrieved and the analysis of the findings is based on the 20 questionnaires retrieved.
The analysis of the quantitative survey data reveals that, some of the environmental
sustainability issues were not considered during procurement. Environmental issues
such as; water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, deforestation and energy
wastage were only considered often while issues like protection of endanger species
and greenhouse effect were mostly ignored. Cost, budget constraint and top
management support were identified as some of the barrier or challenges to the
sustainable procurement. Therefore, there is a need to review public procurement
Act, Act 663 in order to include sustainability during procurement activities.
