The main aim of the study was to evaluate the level of compliance with the Public Finance Management Act in the North West Parks and Tourism Board. In an attempt to achieve the objectives of the study, a qualitative paradigm was adopted. Data was collected from 21 respondents who were purposively selected. The data collection strategies were through an in-depth individual interviews, group interviews and document analysis. The data analysis process on the other hand was through open-coding, followed by a transcription of data from the participants’ actual response. The findings were then presented in the form of a narration with all aspects of ethical consideration respected. Findings from the study reveal that there is a high level of compliance by the North West Park and Tourism Board in relation to the Public Finance Management Act. The empirical study affirms the literature that there is a well prescribed procedure to be followed in the procurement of services by service providers. Not withstanding, this procedure could be compromised depending on the matter at hand. As was depicted by respondents there are also some instances of non-compliance such as during emergencies or when the required numbers of quotations are not available. Among other things, findings also reveal that the NWPTB has several problems such as lack of knowledge by workers and the complex nature of transactions within the board.
