This paper reports on the application procedure for force account for government building projects. The procedure was derived from case study undertaken for renovation and remodelling of three teachers’ colleges and five secondary schools in different areas in Tanzania. The study highlighted the pitfalls observed in the implementation of force account as methods of procurement during and after renovation. The key participants of this method were grouped into three, supervising consultancy, procuring entity and executing team (local skilled labour). It was observed that in order to apply effectively the application of force account, the supervising consultancy has major role with collaboration with procuring entity and executing team based on well detailed documents prepared before and after renovation during implementation of this methods. However, the study finds that the supervising consultancy must be checked with ministry or local authority in the required area in detail to monitor the value for money.
