The study was conducted to analyze how technological dynamism affects public sector procurement performance in Ghana by way of e-business proactiveness as a mediator variable. Three separate goals were offered as a response to the issues outlined in the problem statement. The study used deductive reasoning for the quantitative data and a cross-sectional descriptive survey approach. The sample procedures, the development of research equipment, and the analysis were all informed by a quantitative approach to the study. The hypotheses in this research were grounded on the preexisting RBV and PAT. Procurement officers, retail managers, warehouse managers, and members of entity tender committees made up the study's population of senior managers. A total of 286 staff members with extensive experience with the phenomenon under investigation participated in the survey. Managers from Ghana's public sector firms were selected using a purposive sample strategy for this research. Structural Equation Modeling (SmartPLS 4) was used to verify the study's assumptions. In the research, descriptive statistics were used to summarize the collected data. The results showed that technological dynamism has a significant effect on the performance of public sector procurement. Proactivity in e-business was also shown to have a significant impact on procurement performance, acting as a mediator between technological dynamism and procurement performance. According to the findings, public sector managers may boost procurement performance by fostering technology dynamism and e-business proactiveness. The leadership of public sector enterprises must create a long-term technology strategy, choose their preferred technology-related media channels, and invest in the internet of things, information technology, and other related technologies.
