Electronic Government Procurement (e-GP) solutions make purchasing activities more effective
in terms of both times, cost and as well as improve quality of the procurement methods by
ensuring compliance. e-GP is changing the way businesses purchase goods, works and
services. Since most products and services are procured using the Internet, the application of e-
GP is inevitable in both manufacturing and services. There are limited comparison studies in the
literature on the adoption of e-Procurement in a country, that is, at the specific organizationlevel.
Nevertheless, such a study will encourage other organizations to develop policies,
strategies, and procedures to implement e-GP. Understanding the importance of such a study, I
have collected the data regarding compliance and time issues are from secondary sources
(websites) and conducted a questionnaire-based survey for cost comparison after adoption of e-
GP in Dhaka WASA. The main objective of this study is to identify whether there is any
significant positive effect regarding the implementation of e-Procurement. A conceptual
framework has been developed for the adoption of e-GP, and this subsequently has been tested
with related data of Dhaka WASA collected from websites and questionnaire-based survey.
Also, this study examines the current status of e-GP adoption in Dhaka WASA. The results
indicate both current and future benefits would encourage the adoption of e-GP and make it
sustain. Some critical success factors include adequate financial support, availability of internet
based communication systems, top management support and commitment, enhancement of the
manpower’s skill through rigorous training activities, understanding the priorities of the
organization and having suitable secured networks.
