ABSTRACT

 

The main purpose of this study was to determine the role of e-procurement implementation on procurement performance in State corporations. Specific objectives of the study were; to find out the role of systems integration in e-procurement implementation on procurement performance in KPA; to determine the role of supplier support in e-procurement implementation on procurement performance in KPA, to establish the role of staff training in e-procurement implementation on procurement performance in KPA and to determine the role of top management support in e-procurement implementation on procurement performance in KPA. The study adopted a descriptive research design. The target populations of this study were 240 staffs working in procurement and supplies, finance and accounts and logistics department of Kenya ports authority. The study used stratified random sampling and the sample size was 72 respondents. Primary data was collected by use of questionnaires. The study generated both qualitative and quantitative data. The quantitative data was coded and entered into Statistical Packages for Social Scientists (SPSS Version 24.0) and was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Qualitative data was presented in tables while the explanation to the same was presented in prose. The study concluded that e-procurement implementation makes the purchasing process faster; facilitates better management of the purchasing activities through improved accountability and transparency; improves relationships with business partners; reduces operational costs and reduces prices of procurement goods in state corporations. The study recommends that organizations should embrace e-procurement as a strategy for improving procurement performance.
