dc.description.abstract Vendors’ participation in public e-procurement system termed as a means for government to achieve her objectives on procurement operations. However, little is known about vendors’ willingness drives to participate in public e-procurement system. This paper investigates vendors’ willingness drivers for participation in public e-procurement system. The objective was to identify the drivers with influence on vendors’ willingness for participation in public electronic system. The study adopted a cross-sectional research design. The study was conducted in Ilala District due to concentrations for eligible vendors. The study randomly sampled 300 vendors eligible to participate in public e-procurement system. Public Procurement Regulatory Authority, Government Procurement Services Agency and Medical Stores Department were purposively selected to provide key informants. Quantitative data were collected using structured questionnaire and Key Informants Interview (KIIs) guide used for qualitative data. Quantitative data were analysed by multiple regression for vendors’ willingness drivers’ influence on public electronic procurement system participation. Qualitative data were analysed using content analysis by thematic approach. The study found significant at p < 0.05 on transparent, corruption practice, paper work and perceived usefulness as drivers for vendors’ willingness for participation in public e-procurement system. The study concludes that, vendors are willing to participate in public e-procurement system subjective to significant willingness’ drivers. The study therefore recommends that, the public e-procurement system’s stakeholders must improve on transparent and corruption free zone with awareness creation to attract more vendors to participate. The practical implication is that transparency and corruption free is crucial concern for vendors’ willingness drivers to participate in public electronic procurement system. en_US
