Public procurement policy guarantees that transparency and accountability are enshrined for effective project delivery. However, due to lack of competition and openness in the award of contracts, Yobe state’s public procurement has been characterized as vulnerable to corruption. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the critical factors affecting public procurement implementation policy for effective project delivery in Yobe state. Consequently, a self-administered questionnaire was administered on a random sample of 118 members of MDAs tender board in Yobe state with 100 valid responses recorded. Data were analysed using mean ranking. Findings from the mean ranking revealed that the most critical factors affecting implementation of public procurement policy are lack of experts around public procurement policy, the inability of the anti-corruption agencies to promptly try and dispose public procurement cases, political inference, frequency of changes in design due to improper planning, lack of political-will, poor cash flow and lack of appropriate framework to support public procurement policy implementation. Therefore, it is recommended that the government should collaborate with allied construction professionals in improving implementation of public procurement policy in Yobe state, and appropriate strategies should be adopted for evaluating and getting feedback for the purpose of achieving effective project delivery in Yobe state.
