Data was collected from 2 public entities which do Central Government procuring and disposing entities and I used structured questionnaire. On the level of selected public entities compliance to PPDA in Uganda, the study revealed that; many public entities adhere to procurement laws and this affects their performance in both short and long-run. On the level performance of selected public entities’ with PPDA policy in Uganda, the study revealed that public entities’ compliance to PPDA laws/policies, have directly influenced their performances. On the significant relationship between compliance to PPDA and performances of selected public entities in Uganda, the study revealed that many public entities adhere to procurement laws is positively and significantly correlated with public entities procure genuine products. The study however concluded that the procurement in Uganda is still poorly managed and understood by public entities and this explains why there is a high level of noncompliance to PPDA policy.
