MetadataShow full item record
This study aimed at assessing the effects of procurement methods on project /program performance. The researcher focused on Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) as a case study. UNBS was selected for this study because it was one of the major public institutions with a significant portfolio of public projects. The research design used was descriptive-explanatory. The source of data was mainly primary data. In analyzing the information in the study the researcher used spear man’s correlation, linear regression model, and chi-square test. The results revealed that domestic and international competitive bidding had a positive statistically significant impact on project performance keeping other factors constant. The findings also further revealed that there was a weak positive correlation coefficient between procurement methods and project performance. The study recommends that UNBS should ensure that it chooses an appropriate procurement method to help in the management of a given project. There is also a need for adequate supervision and considering the capacity of the suppliers before awarding contracts. This will enable the organization to enhance and achieve targets, value for money, saving costs for better performance in specific projects.
