This in most cases account for about 50% of project total cost (raw materials, components, supplies and services). Although there are various purchasing strategies, those adopted by county government projects have drawn a lot of attention give the high-level project failure and sustainability. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the influence of purchasing strategy on sustainability of county government project.
