MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between ethical culture, moral awareness, moral attitude and moral action of staff involved in public procurement in Uganda. The study used a cross sectional survey design and collected data from a sample of one hundred and twelve (112) Procuring and Disposing Entities out of one hundred and seventeen (176) central government Procuring and Disposing Entities. Since individuals form the unit of analysis, a second level of sampling was undertaken. A sample of two hundred and twenty four (224) procurement staff was selected. The study achieved a response rate of 47.3 percent. Results reveal that ethical culture, moral awareness and moral attitude were significant predictors of moral action. We therefore recommend that Procuring and Disposing Entities need to improve ethical culture, moral awareness and moral attitude in order to obtain a positive moral action.
