Abstract

The aim of this research was to assess factors that influences the implementation of e-procurement in Technical Universities in Ghana. This was as a result of the important role that e-procurement plays in ensuring an effective and efficient procurement system, though it has not been adequately incorporated in many businesses. The Study employed the Survey Method in the collection of data and questionnaires were the main data collection instrument. One hundred (100) respondents were purposively chosen from the selected Technical Universities. Kaiser-Meyer-Oklin and Barlett's test was used to test if the data obtained was suitable for factor analysis. The factor analysis results gave a four (4)-factor structure which explained 81.208% of the total variance. These factors and the rate at which they explained the total variance are as follows: ICT infrastructure (36.073%), public procurement regulations (20.141%), management commitment (16.156%) and staff competence (8.838%). The Study found out that the ICT infrastructure in the Technical Universities was not adequate. The Study made a recommendation that Technical Universities in Ghana should invest in their ICT infrastructure in order to derive the full benefits of e-procurements.
