ABSTRACT

This research study is to find out how Uganda is trying to bridge the wide gap between itself and

all other international trade partners who have formulated and implemented the green public

procurement practices in their public entities and this is done by carrying out a research study of

an assessment of the effect of green public procurement practices implementation in BIDCO in

Uganda. Procurement professionals have been considering environmental factors in the supply

chain management to reduce the effects of globally talked in conferences in most of UN

Conferences; the global warming, climatic changes, human effects hence the development of

green procurement concept. The general objective of the research study is to investigate on the

assessment of the effect of Green Public procurement practices implementations in devolved

systems in Uganda. The Specific Objectives were: To investigate how the Government of

Uganda policies through PPDA (2005) influences in the implementation of Green Public

Procurement practices and environmental conservation, to find out the influence of top

management team on Green Public procurement practices and environmental conservation, to

investigate if staff training and development has influence in Green Public Procurement practices

and environmental conservation and to investigate the awareness of Green Public Procurement

practices and environmental conservation. The study is valuable to the environmental

conservation in Uganda, academicians and policy makers. Data was analyzed through descriptive

statistics and frequencies. Data was also integrated both qualitative and quantitative techniques

in the analysis. Data presentation was clone using tables and frequencies. The study found out

that Green Public Procurement practices is a evolving phenomenon in the devolved systems in

Uganda having started in 2005 and is slowly growing and being recognized as a concept worth to

be considered in the procui~emeI~t functions. The Green Public Procurement Practices

implementation will be evident through standard specifications of design to prequalified and

potential suppliers, environmental management systems (Ii ke concept of 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse and

Recycle) being i ntrocl uced through waste management, product contents restrictions, checking

supplier environment objectives and vision, and vendor auditing on compliance.
