ABSTRACT

The topic of my research was ethical behavior in procurement decision making and the area of my study was at the District Commissioner's office in Kipkelion District. The study took place at the months of September and October 2011. The purpose of the study was to identify the level of ethical behavior in decision making in Kipkelion district and to determine the impact on the moral development on the employees. Determining the strategies of enhancing ethical decision making was important during the study. The study was conducted mainly by questionnaires which were distributed to the members of the staff in the procurement department who were required to give their views. Direct interviews and observation was also paramount in establishing the findings. The findings showed that the level of ethical decision making in Kipkelion district was ve1y high but its impact on moral development was not greatly felt. Rewarding employees, provision of guidelines and peer support were the main strategies for enhancing moral development.
