enterprises, a case study ofBudaka district local government. the objectives of the study include;

To establish the procurement systems that were in place before the public procurement reforms

in Uganda; to identify the impact of Public Procurement Reforms on services delivery in

Uganda; to examine the roles under taken by the different stakeholders during Public

Procurement Reforms Planning.

Data was collected using self administered questionnaires. The study used stratified and

purposive sampling techniques to draw representative samples and 100 respondents were

involved in the study. The study sampled 100 respondents, 42 of whom were Local government

leaders and employees, 58 providers to the district who were both procurement professionals and

non professionals.

The research established the procurement systems that were in place before the public

procurement reforms, identified the impact of Public Procurement Reforms on Budaka district

local government and examined the roles under taken by the different stakeholders during Public

Procurement Reforms Planning

The findings of this study revealed that there is a positive impact of public procurement reforms

on procuring and disposing entities. It was found out that the CTB was the main overseer of the

procurement process in Uganda before the reforms; the reforms in place include: formation of

the municipal contracts committee, the creation and staffing of a procurement unit among others,

though the reforms are still incomplete due to serious capacity bottlenecks.

The study also recommends the following that the government should invest more in the will to expand the political capacity necessary to implement and enforce the very comprehensive procurement regulations and prepare a proper and comprehensive procurement legal framework, focus on fighting corruption in public procurement which manifests itself in bribery of evaluation and tender board members, facility payments, embezzlement, influence peddling, favoritism and conflict of interest and further training for Local government authorities to enhance clear understanding of the PPDA Act No. 1 of 2003 to its full potential as a finance and budget control mechanism.
