Getnet Amdework Chekol, Tilahun Aemiro Tehulu


Prior to public procurement reform in Ethiopia, non compliance with the country’s public procurement rules and regulations was observed. These include inefficiency, non transparent procurement processes, and lack of knowledge of rules and regulations. The main objective of this study is to identify factors leading to effective public procurement implementation in Ethiopia with particular reference to Amhara regional bureaus and other government institutions found in Bahir Dar town. The study used data from a survey of 42 public procurement officers. The data were collected using questionnaire containing close-ended items of Likert scale type with five points. The data had been analyzed using multiple linear regression. The findings indicate that familiarity in public procurement rules and regulations, transparency in public procurement processes, ethics in public procurement and efficiency in public procurement processes have a positive and statistically significant impact on effective public procurement implementation. The accountability in public procurement, though have positive associations with effective public procurement implementation, did not have a significant impact on effective public procurement implementation.
