The Public Procurement and Disposal Act is a form of regulation that was formulated by the Kenyan legislators in the verge of guiding procurement procedures and practices in the public offices in Kenya. The way the supply chain management officers are involved in public procurement of good and services at district level should ensure compliance with PPDA. This study investigated the factors affecting supply chain management compliance with PPDA of 2005 and Public Procurement and Disposal Regulations of 2006.Specifically, it analysed factors affecting SCM compliance with PPDA and PPDR at district level in the Machakos County. The study employed an exploratory design to investigate the research questions. The study participants were supply chain management heads in central government offices in Machakos County.
