Assessment of Effectiveness of Public Procurement Process : The case study of Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs In TanzaniaMyowela, Christian, Ergete Gorfu, Alemante January 2012 (has links)
Presence of a free market economy has strongly increased competition among companies, this case has led them to find new techniques on how to sell their products or services while public sector have stopped engaging in business by privatizing their production companies. Nowadays in developing countries, all government expenditure depending fully in private sector for products or services, a good example is within stationery items, construction of roads, cleaning works, transportation and so forth. These procurements have been associated with many scandals such as favourism in awarding of procurement contracts to some companies. Therefore, there is need for developing countries to rectify and control ministerial tender board acts in awarding contracts that will ensure fair competition, transparency and accountability by establishing good corporate governance codes. The aim of this thesis is to assess efficiency and effectiveness of Public Procurement Process as case study in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs of Tanzania.This study has targeted interviews and observation which have shown there is ineffective of the public procurement process that are injected by the public procurement Act No. 21 of 2004 and others are caused by inadequate budget to pay suppliers on time, limitation of skills and knowledge to the ministerial staffs and PMU staffs. Furthermore, researchers have recommended that there is a need to amend the public procurement Act No. 21 of 2004 and accommodate some key points that will enhance efficiency and effectiveness of the procurement process that will increase revenue collection and emphasing training of user PMU staffs. However, this Act is not panacea – solution of everything but it must be dynamic to accommodate new issues as it will be raised new techniques and principles that will insure accountability and efficiency on procurement.

Abstract Most businesses in Taiwan are family-owned, and family members are the key managers and members of the board. Since the power of management and operation is mixed, some decisions based on self-interest may result in loss of the company and its shareholders, even financial crisis. The poor corporate governance issue in Taiwan was hidden for several years, and finally revealed since 1998, from Kuangsan Enterprise Group, American Furniture, Tong Lung Metal Industry Co., Ltd., Wan You Papers, Victor Taichung Machinery, to the recent cases of ProComp and Mosel Vitelic Inc., while most of which involved embezzlement to safeguard the stocks. The mixed power of management and operation has led to bankruptcy of companies, and significant loss in investors. Therefore, to generalize a set of simple method to different companies with poor corporate governance, and provide an effective method to all investors, this study first selected listing companies with at least two independent directors and one independent supervisor, then chose 60 companies that showed no poor governance, and then compared with 10 companies with poor governance for analysis. This study then found the commonalities as predicting factors on poor governance, so as to minimize investment loss. Suggestions on the corporate governance bylaws were also proposed to present systematic methods, make the bylaws more comprehensive, and overcome internal and external barriers during implementation. This study also analyzed the existing structure of the board, established a set of simple analytic tool based on percentage of seats, shareholding percentage, employee turnover rate, allocation of financial supervisors, and pledged shares of the directors and supervisors to promote the operating stability. The investors could utilize this tool to analyze the possibility of poor governance of the investment target, and minimize the loss.

This thesis seeks to address corporate governance from both a practical as well as an academic perspective. It searches for solutions to self-interest and agency costs, problems that it is posited are innate to the anthropomorphism of the corporation and to the separation of management and ownership of widely held, publicly traded, corporations. / Practically, this dissertation is anchored in experience, garnered from empirical research, based on in depth and general surveys, as well as detailed interviews. It examines the workings of corporations, including their boards of directors, of gatekeepers, of checks and balances and of shareholders and the relative importance and rationale for the roles that they play. Based on the academic and empirical efforts it is posited that self-interest and the funneling syndrome, (a process whereby information required for decision making is constrained and managed by those in control), almost always predetermines the outcome of the corporate formal decision making process involving the board of directors. This facilitates abuse. When it occurs and there appears to be no accountability, confidence essential to the capital markets, quite understandably, suffers. / A hypothesis is advanced to explain the complexity of a potential failure of corporate governance through a relatively simple formula. It draws conclusions as to what is required to help address the challenges raised by the breakdown in effective corporate governance and to help instill greater investor confidence. A self-assessment mechanism to help quantify how effectively a corporation is dealing with corporate governance, both on an absolute basis (comparing itself year over year) and on a relative basis (compared to one's peers) is proffered. This tool of more effective corporate governance, seeks to identify the causes for breakdowns in corporate governance and to assist a board of directors in dealing more proactively with this challenge.
