In addition, results revealed that procurement contracting, procurement control and procurement planning are significant predictors of procurement performance at UNRA. Finally a number of recommendations are given; central government, different government entities should improve procurement performance through sensitizing their employees to adopt the procurement management constructs namely procurement planning, procurement contracting procurement control. ICT should also be adopted in these entities to support the procurement activities so that efficiency and effectiveness can be achieved in the public procurement process and Areas for future research may want to use a qualitative case-based approach that uses in-depth interviews to solicit unstructured views about procurement performance which could employ a larger sample size including local government bodies since this study only considered Uganda National Roads Authority.
