ABSTRACT

The research work was titled “Examining the effect of Procurement officers on organizational

performance, a case study of WFP in Uganda. The research work was organized into five

coherent chapters. Chapter one was basically the introductory part of the research work. An

extensive literature on the research work was piled up at chapter two. Methodology such as the

use of questionnaires and interviews were used to collect data for the research.

Interesting findings such as problems faced by procurement professionals in WFP were

discovered from the research. The challenges were divided into; internal and external changes.

Internal challenges found included: existence of many accountability centers; long and

cumbersome procurement procedures; and lack of early involvement in decision making.

External challenges included: inadequacy of local supplies; fluctuating prices for the supplies;

lack of clear-cut policies on procurement in Uganda; political instability; pressure from suppliers

to induce procurement managers; and foreign exchange.

The findings revealed a strong relationship between procurement officers and performance of

WFP in Uganda at 72%. This strong relationship was supported by the benefits that accrued from

procuring of goods, works and services such as; better utilization of funds, effective contract

management, negotiating and administration of .the best deals, and maintaining productive

supplier relationships.

Recommendations were made against each of the challenges and the study suggested other areas

for further studies such as: Impact of bureaucratic tendencies on procurement performance; and

Challenges caused by political instability on the procurement function.
