MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of the study was to determine the relationship between operant competencies, counterproductive work behavior (CWB), organizational citizenship behavior (OCB), and performance of district tender boards in Uganda. The specific objectives were to: determine whether the district tender board leadership members possess the necessary operant competencies; establish the relationship between operant competencies and CWB; establish the relationship between operant competencies and OCB; and establish the relationship between operant competencies, CWB, OCB and performance. A cross sectional research design was adopted. Purposive sampling was used to select 103 tender board members but 98 participated in the study. Frequencies, percentages, correlation and regression were used to analyze the status of and relationships between operant competencies, CWB, OCB, and performance. Findings reveled that operant competencies negatively related to CWB. Operant competencies positively related to OCB. CWB negatively related to OCB. OCB positively related to performance. CWB negatively related to performance. It is recommended that competence analysis and profiling of district tender board members should be frequently conducted to identify the necessary operant competencies that would combat CWB and encourage OCB in the district tender boards and thus improve the performance of district tender board members.
