CIPS has been awarded professional body status in Ghana, meaning it officially represents the procurement and supply chain profession in the country.
The organisation said it would work for the good of the profession and champion the raising of standards through its qualifications and leading-edge thinking and research.
Duncan Brock, director of customer relationships at CIPS, said: “CIPS is delighted to have been given this recognition as we start our official journey in Ghana.
“CIPS is the only professional body in the world to set the Global Standard and promote a code of conduct for procurement and supply practice and we are delighted to be able to better support our Ghanaian community.”
A dedicated office and Knowledge Resource Centre will be open in Accra from 9am to 4pm, with CIPS country manager Stella Aku Addo in charge.
