AN IMPLEMENTATION OF INBOUND LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT ON PUBLIC PROCUREMENT PERFORMANCE AT PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS IN KENYA: A CASE STUDY OF KENYA MEDICAL SUPPLIES AGENCY


Kipkorir Elton Langat

ABSTRACT

The study sought to examine the implementation of inbound logistics management on public procurement performance at public institutions in Kenya, with specific reference to Kenya Medical Supplies Agency. The efficiency and effectiveness of the public procurement in Kenya had not been realized until the creation and enactment of the Public Procurement and Disposal Act of Kenya (2005) and the Public Procurement Regulations that followed forthwith. Despite the already existing steps aimed at achieving the objectives of a fully functional procurement system, there was need to examine the implementation of inbound logistics management on public procurement performance especially at public institutions in Kenya. The specific objectives of the study were to assess the contribution of inbound transportation services to public procurement performance, assess the role of warehousing facilities on public procurement performance, to establish the contribution of inventory control systems on public procurement performance and to determine the role of information communication technology to public procurement performance at public institutions in Kenya. The target population of the study was a total of 200 employees of KEMSA, where different sections as guided by the organizational structure were treated as strata for the purposes of the study. Proportionate random sampling and simple random sampling techniques were used to arrive at the number of respondents from each section to be studied. Data was collected using questionnaires and analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics.
