E-Procurement: How Does it Enhance Strategic Performance?

Paul Phillips, Wojciech Piotrowicz

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The research, based on an interdisciplinary literature review, highlights the strategic choices, various profiles and salient factors of electronic procurement (eprocurement). The authors identify some factors which are important when adopting a strategic, rather than a tactical e-procurement perspective. The article proposes a broad framework for assessing the e-procurement performance relationship and provides an understanding of the impact of e-procurement on organizational performance. The proposed research framework suggests that alignment among business strategy, e-procurement strategy, e-procurement tool, strategic IT capability and strategic typology have a positive influence on a company’s strategic performance.
