between roles played by procurement stakeholders and effective contracts management.
The correlation analysis findings revealed a positive but a low significant relationship
(rho = 0.404**) between roles played by end user and effective contracts management.
There was a moderate and statistically positive significant relationship(r =0.501**) betwee
n procurement department and effective contracts management. The findings also
revealed a high and a statistically positive significant relationship (rho = 0.623**) between
contract management team and effective contracts management. There was a high and
statistically positive but high significant relationship (rho = 0.676**) between regulatory
bodies and effective contracts management. It was concluded that end users, procurement
departments, contract management teams and regulatory bodies have influence on
