          Abstract

          The public sector, including the county government, has undergone massive changes over time amid the existence of several regulations and laws. The realization of efficiency and effectiveness has been a tall order. This study, therefore, sought to establish the effect of procurement planning on procurement function performance in Kakamega County Government. This study was guided by one null hypothesis. The review of the literature consisted of a theoretical review and an empirical review. The study was guided by systems theory. The study adopted a cross-sectional research design involving a target population of all staff members in the procurement department. A census was used. Primary data was collected using questionnaires, which were administered through the drop-and-pick method. A pilot study was conducted in Samburu County. The analysis of the data was done using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study findings were presented in tables. The findings indicated that procurement planning had a positive but non-significant change in procurement function performance (t =.697, p > 0.05). The study recommends the application of procurement planning and other supply chain practices to enhance procurement function performance. In conclusion, procurement planning alone cannot enhance performance levels. County governments in Kenya can enhance procurement function performance levels by embracing all supply chain management practices and putting up infrastructure that can help in the implementation.
