The study exploredcritical success factors and project procurement management for telecommunication network equipment at MTN – Uganda. Its objective was to evaluate the major critical success factors that affect project procurement management in telecommunication companies by establishing the extent to which re-engineering of process affects project procurement management. Its supplementary objective was to examine the influence of budgetary controls on project procurement management as well as assess the relationship between supplier management and project procurement management. Using a cross-sectional and correlation research design, both primary and secondary data — collected using selfadministered questionnaires — was collected from a sample size of 113 respondents in accordance with Krejcie and Morgan’s (1970) approach. The findings of the study reveal that there is a strong positive correlation between re-engineering and project procurement management with a correlation coefficient of r=0.836 at significance level p=0.000>0.05.

Therefore, theAdjusted R=0.693 indicates that re-engineering contributes 69.3% of project procurement management. There is also a positive relationship between budgetary controls and project procurement management with a correlation coefficient of r=0.580 at the significance level p=0.000>0.05. This implies that a unit increase in project procurement management is positively influenced by budgetary controls. The Adjusted R square=0.325 indicates that 32.5% of the variance in project procurement management can be predicted by variable budgetary control. There is also a strong positive relationship between supplier management and project procurement management with correlation coefficient of r = 0.862 at significance level p = 0.000>0.05. This means that a unit increase in project procurement management positively influences supplier management. The Adjusted R square=0.738 means that 73.8% of the variance in project procurement management can be predicted from the variable supplier management.

The study recommends for the identification of critical success factors to ensure successful project procurement management in telecommunication companies.
