Abstract: The general objective of this study was to design, develop and implement Proposed E-Procurement and Supply Management System (PEPSMS) at Kampala international University. The specific objectives were to: (i) examine the level of assessment of the Existing Procurement and Supply Management System (EPSMS) by users in regard to business process. (ii) to determine the level of assessment by the “users” of the PEPSMS after implementation in terms of business process. (iii)) to establish whether there is a significant difference in the level of assessment between the existing procurement and supply management system and the PEPSMS in terms of business process. Quasi-experimental design (assessment of the EPSMS) - post test design (after the implementation of the PEPSMS) was used on a total sample of 29 respondents and t-sample test was used to test the null hypothesis. Findings show that, the level of assessment of the existing procurement and Supply Management System (EPSMS) by the respondents was fair in terms of business process. Further more there was a significant difference in level of assessment of the EPSMS and the PEPSMS before and after implementation. However, the researcher recommends that KIU provides opportunities to its staff members who had low ICT knowledge to go for further training as revealed by the study; and full support by management of KIU should be accorded to the PEPSMS because with out it, sustainability of the system will not be realized Keywords: Existing procurement and Supply Management System (EPSMS),Proposed E-Procurement and Supply Management System (PEPSMS), Business Process.
