ABSTRACT

This study sought to evaluate the effects of the PPDA on effective project implementation in public entities in Kenya. The study critically analyzed four aspects of the PPDA namely; public financial management framework within which it is implemented, knowledge levels by the procurement unit, compliance to the PPDA by the procurement entity and effectiveness of oversight by the PPOA and how they influence effective project implementation. Kisauni Constituency Development Fund (CDF) was taken as the case study. The study relied on primary data collected from respondents from four sub groups: Constituency projects tender committee, Constituency development fund tender committee, individual project committees and suppliers. Stratified random sampling was used to select the sample for the study. Primary data was collected using questionnaires and personal interviews from a sample of 44 respondents. Data analysis was done and the results were presented in tables, graphs, Pie charts and accompanied by narrations on findings. The study found out that public procurement within Kisauni CDF was characterized by a high level of application of the public financial management framework, low levels of knowledge by the procurement unit, low levels of compliance to the public and ineffective oversight by the PPOA. This had adverse effects including; delays in project implementation, failure to eliminate corruption, inflation of project costs and to a small extent, poor quality goods, works and services. The study recommended that the public financial management framework and the procurement laws be reviewed to reduce inefficiencies, training for procurement professionals and improvement of the capacity of the PPOA to oversight the procurement process.
