In spite of the legal, policy and institutional reforms undertaken so far in the public procurement sector in Kenya, procurement regulatory compliance remains a challenge in the state corporations. The purpose of this study was to establish determinants of procurement regulatory compliance in state corporations in Kenya. The study sought to be guided by the following specific objectives; to determine how staff competency, technology, contract management and government laws & regulations influence procurement regulatory compliance in state corporations in Kenya. Data was collected from the 88 top and middle level managers, supervisors and procurement staff with involved in planning and acquisition of goods services and works. The study adopted a descriptive research approach to collect primary data. The findings revealed a strong positive relationship between the independent variables and dependent variable. Based on the study findings, the study concluded that procurement regulatory compliance in state corporations in Kenya is affected by staff competency; contract management, technology and legal framework are the major factors that mostly affect E procurement regulatory compliance in state corporations in Kenya. This therefore means that other factors not studied in this research contribute 24.30% to the procurement regulatory compliance in state corporations. Therefore other factors affecting procurement regulatory compliance in state corporations need to be established. These may include the existing procurement planning, training; supplier relationship management among others needs further investigation.
