In addition, the role for choice of suitable procurement method in the success of construction projects is becoming an increasingly important issue because the recently developed methods put an emphasis on achieving the client’s objectives as quickly as possible. The current study traced the impact of procurement methods on success of construction projects in Uganda with the specific objectives of assessing the impact of traditional procurement method on the success of construction projects, examining the impact of the design and build procurement method on the success of construction projects and investigating the impact of Built Own Operate Transfer procurement method on the on success of construction projects. Of the initial cohort of fifty-nine respondents, 48 respondents were end-users, five were Procurement Officers, three were Contractors and three were Top Management officers.

Both random and purposive sampling was used in the study to obtain quantitative and qualitative information form primary respondents and key informants respectively. The findings of the study depicted that Traditional procurement method, Design and Build (DB) procurement method and the Built Own Operate Transfer procurement method have a positive relationship with the success of the construction industry with the traditional procurement method having a highest positive relation with the success of the construction industry. It is therefore important to develop a formalised regression models that can be used to predict performance based on project needs and procurement choices, to aid appropriate selection of procurement methods as all procurement methods seem to have a positive impact on the success of the project. There is also a need There is also a need further to establish the Influence of amendment to tender on completion of construction projects and the Influence of submission and closing of tenders on completion of construction projects.
