E-procurement Practices in the U.S. Construction Industry

9 pagesPublished: May 15, 2022


E-procurement has been a part of several industries for more than three decades now. Although the construction industry is commendable for its wonders, there are few studies about the current applications of E-procurement in construction. The main objective of this research is to survey the construction companies to collect the current practices of E-procurement in construction. A survey was developed and distributed to the construction industry in the U.S., and 409 responses were obtained. The researchers used the survey responses to document the current practices of the companies that use E-procurement. It is expected that documenting the current practices of E- procurement in construction could help enhance construction companies' use of E-procurement successfully to improve their business. Further, the companies that already use E-procurement may optimize their practices. E-procurement can positively impact the construction industry by saving time, money and resolving disputes with suppliers.
