On February 28, 2019, the American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana organized a Procurement Seminar in collaboration with the Millennium Development Authority to lay bare the various procurement opportunities available under the current Ghana Power Compact.
Procurement Director at MiDA, Frank Mante, took participants through the various procurement opportunities available under Compact II and urged local companies to take advantage of these opportunities.
Mr. Mante said MiDA runs a very transparent and fair bid selection process and that everyone stands a chance to win, provided they present all that is required and submit their bids on time.
President of the American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana, Joe Mensah, advised Ghanaian entrepreneurs not to feel intimidated by the challenge, but rather come on board with the hope and optimism that they would sail through.
“You are well qualified for the challenge as a Ghanaian entrepreneur; do not feel intimidated because your enterprise is not big, visit the website, know more and discover where you can fit in and join,” he said.
Frank Mante also made it known during his presentation that, some Ghanaian companies were able to win contracts under Compact I, therefore, Compact II should see more local companies participating.
He added that in order not to be disqualified, participants should submit accurate documents within the stipulated deadlines.
Martin Eson Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer of MiDA, encouraged small companies to look out for partnerships with business in order to meet up with requirements.
