Yussuf Ali Masoud


The study aimed to examine the contribution of staff competence to procurement performance in Tanzania's parastatal organizations. It was specifically intended to investigate the effect of staff qualification, staff skills, and management support on procurement performance and make recommendations for improvement. The data were collected from heads of departments at 93 parastatal organizations in Dar es Salaam using structured questionnaires. The study's population consisted of 712 respondents, with a sample size of 256 randomly selected, but only 241 questionnaires were returned, completed, and used for analysis. The data were descriptively and inferentially analyzed using a multiple regression analysis with the help of SPSS version 23. The finding shows that staff qualification, staff technical skills, and management support positively influence procurement performance. The study implied that the procuring entities should ensure that procurement staff are professionally qualified, have technical skills, and are supported by the management to ensure that value for money is achieved from the procurement process within the parastatal organizations
