Abstract

The issue of moral motivation in public procurement management has received little attention among scholars and researchers. This study was aimed to investigate factors affecting moral motivation in public procurement management in Uganda. The literature relating to the study was reviewed and a conceptual framework developed. Descriptive research design, specifically a survey study was employed in carrying out the research. The target population of the study was people involved in procurement activities in Uganda that consisted of a sample of procurement professionals/practitioners from each of 25 selected procurement and disposal entities. The research instrument was a structured questionnaire that was self-administered to the 60 potential respondents.Both Univariate and Bivariate analyses were employed in analyzing the data with the use of SPSS computing software version 17. In testing the three hypotheses, “t” test and “F” test were applied. While computing, a P value equal to 0.05 was considered of high significant level and a value of a significant level was taken to be equal to 0.10. As indicated by the results of the findings, it was noted predisposing, enabling and reinforcing factors do significantly affect moral motivation in
public procurement management in Uganda. It was further revealed that individual factors play a dominant and vital role in determining moral motivation in public procurement management in Uganda. However, great attention should be paid on these three factors in strategically managing public procurement.
