Mohd Rezal Jaafar, Sumaiyah Abd Aziz, Nathasa Mazna Ramli

Abstract


ABSTRACT

Cases of non-compliance, irregularities and frauds in the government procurement still persist although compliance with Government Procurement Policy (GPP) is mandated by regulations. Complying with procurement standards by law does not necessarily succeeding in implementation of procurement best practices. This paper investigates the moderating impacts of compliance with the GPP on the relationship between the explanatory factors and current Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) practice in Malaysia, in a comprehensive single framework. Survey questionnaires were administered to 104 government organisations and 177 responses were received from procurement officers. Based on the hierarchical multiple regression analysis, the anticipated outcome of this study is the extent to which the procurement compliance does not guarantee the implementation of SPP practice. The results of this study have provided some explanations regarding the extent of compliance with GPP on the relationship between the explanatory factors and SPP practice.

ABSTRAK

Walaupun pematuhan Polisi Perolehan Kerajaan telah dimandatkan dalam peraturan, kes-kes ketidakpatuhan, penyelewengan dan penipuan dalam perolehan kerajaan masih berlaku. Mematuhi piawaian undang-undang perolehan tidak semestinya berjaya dalam pelaksanaan amalan perolehan yang terbaik. Kertas ini mengkaji kesan penyederhana pematuhan terhadap Polisi Perolehan Kerajaan mengenai hubungan di antara faktor-faktor dan amalan Perolehan Awam Mapan (SPP) di Malaysia, dalam satu kerangka kerja yang komprehensif. Soal selidik kajian telah diberikan kepada 104 organisasi kerajaan, dan 177 maklum balas telah diterima daripada pegawai-pegawai perolehan. Berdasarkan analisis regresi hirarki berganda, hasil jangkaan kajian ini ialah tahap pematuhan perolehan tidak menjamin pelaksanaan amalan SPP. Keputusan kajian ini telah memberikan beberapa penjelasan mengenai peranan yang dimainkan oleh tahap pematuhan terhadap Polisi Perolehan Kerajaan mengenai hubungan di antara faktor-faktor dan amalan SPP.
