ABSTRACT The study focused on the impact of supplier development and purchasing perforn1ance in firms. The researcher was prompted to can-y out this study to investigate whether the purchasing perforn1ance increases as a result of supplier development. The objectives of the study were to establish the different categories and levels of supplier development practices, measures of purchasing perfonnance and to establish the relationship between supplier development and purchasing perfonnance. The data was reviewed through readily available text books, news papers, journals, surfing on the internet and the data was analyzed qualitatively. During the study, the researcher established different categories and levels of supplier development. However, it was observed that many organizations have not realized the benefits of categorizing suppliers. It was established that there is a positive relationship between supplier development and purchasing perfonnance. The researcher also made recommendations like regular and continuous training of different stakeholders involved in supplier development programme with a major aim of acquainting them with skills, attitude and knowledge based on knowhow.
