This study was intended to identify issues affecting implementation of public procurement policies in the government institutions. Procurement policies and procedures follow a logical pattern and are designed to ensure that the procurement process adheres to a company's financial regulations and procurement law. The study objectives were to establish the effect of training on implementation of procurement policies, to identify the effect of change management on implementation of procurement policies, to determine the effect of ethics on implementation of procurement policies and to establish the effect of organizational culture on implementation of public procurement policies in the government ministries. The study used descriptive research design with the target population of 150 staff from Ministry of East African affairs Commerce and Tourism in Kenya. A stratified random sampling technique to ensure representativeness was employed to select a sample of 109 respondents. Questionnaires were used to collect data being an easy and faster method of data collection. Both quantitative and qualitative methods of data analysis were used to analyze the gathered data presented using bar charts, pie charts and tables. In conclusion, training is partially effective in the ministry; change has a dramatic effect on the ways in which the procurement policies are implemented; ethics is an important factor on implementation of procurement policies; and organizational culture determines how procurement system will be implemented. In recommendation, management of the institution should ensure that its entire staff is aware of training programs at hand; management should ensure that they carry out the change management process amicably and should involve all employees so that it will be effectively undertaken without resistance; management should ensure that principles of good ethics are followed and all employees should know what they are; the management should ensure that its organizational culture is efficient.
