COCOBOD Clarifies Procurement of iPad Keyboards for Board Members

The Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) has issued a statement clarifying recent reports about the procurement of computer keyboards for board members. The statement, released on April 1, 2024, addresses a widely circulated memo originating from the Information Systems Department of the Board regarding the procurement of iPad keyboards.

According to the statement, the memo was a proposal requesting management to approve the procurement of iPad keyboards for members of the Board of Directors. The request was based on the Board’s adoption of the “CONVENE” App, which aims to reduce the use of paper and stationary during board meetings while enhancing productivity and collaboration among members.

The statement emphasizes that management has not sanctioned the procurement of the keyboards, and as a result, no procurement transactions have taken place. This clarification comes in the wake of reports that COCOBOD had purchased 15 computer keyboards at Ghs 4,500 each, totaling Ghs 67,500, to increase the productivity of board members.
