This is a thesis paper on supply chain management practices and supply chain performance at Tana and Athi Rivers Development Authority (TARDA). The study sought to unravel the effect ofSCMP on performance ofTARDA. As such, the study had two objectives; to determine the relationship between SCM practices and supply chain performance at TARDA and to establish challenges that face implementation of the SCM practices at TARDA. Importantly, the study reviewed literature on SCM practices, application of SCM systems in SCM practices, SCM performance, SCM practices and firm performance and challenges faced by the SCM practices. Nonetheless, the research design used in the study was a survey where questionnaires were used as the main tool for data collection where likert scale was applied. Importantly, the study established that the application of SCM practices have contributed positively to the SCM performance since most of its aspects were fulfilled to moderate extend. However, there were some requirements that were not sufficiently addressed by the SCM practices which the study provided various recommendations to be implemented. For instance, the study recommended that the Authority should have a change management programme to address staff resistance problems. Nevertheless, the study also proposed that a study should be undertaken to develop a monitoring and evaluation framework for SCM practices being applied.
