There has been little public discourse on the subject matter of post-qualification even though, it remains a very critical aspect in the evaluation of Tenders/Proposals/Quotations under Ghana’s public procurement regime. It is therefore pertinent to carry out some expository analysis of what it entails, its relevance and how it can be used to mitigate procurement related risks in public procurement in Ghana. However, before we delve a bit further, it is appropriate to explore some working definition of what post-qualification is. Note that the Public Procurement Act, 2003 (Act 663) as amended by The Public Procurement (Amendment) Act, 2016 (Act 914), and the Subsidiary Legislations do not provide any definition of post-qualification. We shall therefore proceed to adopt the definition provided by the African Development Bank (AfDB).
