The findings were compiled and computations done where applicable. Frequency tables were drawn after analyzing the data using SPSS software version 21.0. The research found out that working capital management, accountability for funds used and financial planning had significant influence on project performance. It is recommended that the project management should ensure that there is proper financial management for their projects to perform better.
