It was specifically aimed at establishing how customer relationship management, inventory management; information sharing, information communication technology, supplier relationship management and contract management practices affect performance of Government ministers in Kenya.Design/Research method: The study used case study research design in its methodology. The study was guided by Resource based view Theory and strategic choice theory. Data was collected using structured questionnaires. Procurement managers and the equivalent were the targeted population from the 22 staff in various government ministries in Kenya. Finding: The study findings indicated that procurement management practices have a positive impact on performance in government ministries in Kenya.
