Public Procurement is one of the major objectives of any government striving to deliver goods and services to its people. Indeed, procurement permeates the entire spectrum of the development process since the government is a major purchaser of goods and services that entails the application of colossal amounts of money running into billions of shillings. If the procurement process is not transparent and efficient, it results in the loss of taxpayers’ money which in turn reverses the gains made with
the attendant consequences of poverty, insecurity, poor infrastructure, inadequate health services among others. Unfortunately the foregoing scenario has characterized public procurement in many countries over the years. In an attempt to address these weaknesses, various governments have tailor made legal framework to provide an efficient system of procurement. This paper therefore makes an attempt to look a the implication of the legal framework, implementation challenges and organisational performance. The paper is basically a conceptualization of the study variables and explores a spectrum of various studies with a view to establish knowledge gaps in compliance of public procurement of legal framework in different contexts.
