  • Epiphany Odubuker Picho Muni University


This study aimed at establishing the ways in which institutional human capacity affects performance in public procurement at Uganda College of Commerce (UCC), Pakwach and National Teachers College (NTC), Muni, both located in West Nile sub-region of Uganda. The study followed a cross-sectional survey design. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches were used. This study targeted a random sample of 122 respondents. Purposive sampling was also used to select the Accounting Officers and the Contracts Committee members of the institutions. The findings revealed a positive correlation (.611) between institutional human capacity and procurement performance. Thus, it was concluded that institutional human capacity (measured in terms of professionalism and competence) affected performance in institutions in the region. Therefore, prioritisation of institutional human capacity building is recommended.
