TRAINING AND SUPPLIER ADOPTION AS DETERMINANTS OF IMPLEMENTATION OF E-PROCUREMENT AT RONGO UNIVERSITY, KENYA

Julius Oyamo, Lucy Nyakeyo

Abstract: The study sought to understand the determinants of implementation of e-procurement in higher learning institutions and in particular at a case of Rongo University. The study had two objectives namely: To determine the effect of training on implementation of e-procurement in Rongo University, and; To determine the effect of supplier adoption on implementation of e-procurement in Rongo University. The technology acceptance model and diffusion of innovations theories are the models used for this study. A descriptive research design was adopted to achieve the objectives and a quantitative method was employed to gather data from staff of Rongo University. A sample size of 79 respondents was purposively selected. A questionnaire was used to collect data which was then analyzed using descriptive statistics. Multiple regression analysis was used to show the relationship between the independent and dependent variables. The study findings revealed that the employees of the Rongo University perceived training as being central to effective adoption of e-procurement. The study therefore recommended that Rongo University should establish e-procurement team with information technology expertise and constantly improve their knowledge and skills through regular training. The study equally recommended that the top management should remain committed towards the implementation process of the e-procurement in the university.
