This study examined public managers' opinion about factors that constrained the implementation of Ghana's anti-corruption policy inaugurated in the years between 2001 and 2008 under former President John Agyekum Kufuour and the NPP government. Data for the study was collected through semi-structured elite interviews conducted with 20 purposively selected senior public managers from five anti-corruption agencies who were directly involved in overseeing the implementation of the anti-corruption policy. According to the study findings, lack of institutional and human capacity, weak skills, inadequate number of staff and insufficient funding and logistics constrained the effective implementation of the NPP's anti-corruption policy.
