ABSTRACT

Governments around the world are increasingly becoming concerned with the benefits of information technology in the delivery of public services. This innovation has been driven by two related variables namely the rapid pace of globalization, which has encouraged business cooperation, financial opportunities, and investment among nations. In public procurement, wide-spread use of e-procurement system also depends on the availability of supporting infrastructures, such as sufficient broadband coverage. Procurement policies and laws can be used to enforce compliance which in turn may influence the implementation of e-procurement. This study sought to establish the influence of procurement laws and policies on the implementation of e-procurement. The study used descriptive research design and collected data from supply chain stakeholders in both county and national governments using questionnaires with a sample size was 373 respondents. The data was analysed through descriptive statistics and inferential statistics such as regression and independent t test. The study found that there was more compliance with procurement laws/policies at the county level than at national government. The attitude of the stakeholders towards e-procurement was more positive at the county level than at the national level hence the influence of procurement laws on implementation of e-procurement had more impact at county level than at national level.
