Abstract:
ABSTRACT Supply Chain Disruption Management is a structured and continuous process employed in analyzing the impact of disruptions across the supply chain functions on predefined objectives and in line with their entire operational lifecycle. Information on supply process and Supply Chain Disruption Management would help institutions in making efficient procurement decisions, while lack of it may hamper institutional procurement efficiency. There existslimited information on how the management of supply chaindisruptions contributes to procurement performance in public Schools in Kenya. This paper purposed to determine the effect of supply chain disruption management on procurement performance of public secondary schools in Kenya, focusing onRachuonyo North District; seeking to establisheffect of disruption assessment, determining effect of disruption monitoring and investigating effect of disruption mitigation on procurement performance in secondary schools, on a sample size of 179 from a target population of 405 respondents; and using Spearman’s correlation coefficient in analysis, the study revealed significant positive correlation between supply chain disruption assessment and procurement performance, atrs = .885, n =197, p< 0.01, two tails; significant positive correlation between supply chain disruption monitoring and procurement performance, atrs = .995,n =197,p < 0.01,two tails, and a significant positive correlation between supply chain disruption mitigation and procurement performance, atrs = .973,n =197,p < 0.01,two tails. These results demonstrate that institutions disruptions assessment, monitoring and mitigation mechanisms are significant in explaining procurement performance functions and trends. Institutions should therefore invest in designing and selecting sufficient tools, applying relevant skills and mitigation mechanism to maintain high procurement performance.
