Electronic Procurement (E-procurement) is an application of Electronic
Commerce (E-Commerce) that facilitates corporate purchasing over the Internet. Eprocurement
is expected to play a foremost role in supply chain management and improve the
service of delivery. However, not every firm has been successful in E-procurement
implementation; most of organizations that fail or delay the implementation are due to non
organizational assessment at micro level. To address this issue there is a need for an advanced
assessment of organizational electronic readiness (e-readiness) to fuel a concrete planning for
the implementation of E-procurement in Malaysian based organizations. This paper attempted
to explore the literature on organizational e-readiness factors that lead to E-procurement
implementation. Eventually, a proposed theoretical framework is developed for organizational
e-readiness that consolidates relevant factors that have been categorized into perceived
management readiness, perceived technological readiness and perceived environmental
readiness. Beside the impact of organizational e-readiness to E-procurement implementation,
market turbulence also has been identified as a moderating factor between organizational ereadiness
and E-procurement implementation.
