ABSTRACT This research was carried out in Mwanza City Council. The objective of this study was to investigate management problems for road construction projects within Mwanza city council, as an instrument for enhancing our lmowledge behind local government performance. Much emphasis was given on roads project funding, procurement of road works and the execution of the project. It also looked at the human technical capacity needed to supervise the projects. Road construction projects in local authorities have recorded poor performance to the extent that the public has questioned the rationale for continuing to have them. Firstly, this study investigated whether lack of technically qualified staff had an influence on road construction projects. Secondly, the study was set to investigate whether non-adherence to the Local Government Financial Memorandum in procurement in roads works has any effects to projects performance. Road contract management and administration techniques used in Mwanza city council have been investigated ..
