ABSTRACT The study was conducted to assess the effect of procurement practices on performance of private universities in Greater Accra. The study employed a descriptive survey research design and was supported by the quantitative research approach. The population included some 250 procurement officers and procurement heads of all the 43 accredited private universities in Greater Accra Region. Descriptive statistics (Mean, standard deviation, frequency and percentages) and inferential statistics (multiple regression) were used for the primary data analysis in respect of the specific research objectives. It was discovered that procurement practices accounted for a statistically significant 55.7% of the variance in the performance of private universities in Greater Accra when the effect of other factors existing in private universities in Greater Accra that can affect performance of these private universities are statistically controlled. Supplier partnership, contract management and procurement planning procedure were found to be significant positive contributors to the improvement in organisational performance. Private universities are advised to implement procurement practices and this will improve their performance.
