This paper explores the potential of public e-procurement technologies to reduce corruption in the public procurement process. It analyses the risk factors of corruption in the government procurement processes such as in project planning, product design and documentation, tender process, contract awards, and accounting and auditing. It assesses different cases of various developing countries and emerging economies with a specific focus on the potential of public e-procurement to transparency and accountability. The results indicate that anti-corruption capabilities of public e-procurement,particularly the automation and audit trail capabilities can potentially increase the transparency and accountability of the government procurement process.
