Abstract: Procurement is the acquisition of goods, services or works from an outside external source and performance of services by any contractual means. Public procurement means procurement using public funds. Public sector organizations acquire goods, services and works from third parties. It is important that the goods/services are appropriate and that they are procured at the best possible cost to meet the needs of the purchaser in terms of quality and quantity, time, and location. Electronic procurement makes public contracting more accessible, more secure and more efficient. Through the web interface, procurement information becomes accessible and competition and transparency are enhanced while making collusive bidding difficult. Lean thinking is recognized as one of the most effective methodologies to improve business processes. It aims to satisfy customers by increasing the value of the products/services for them and to reduce simultaneously the lead times. The objective of this paper is to discuss the impact of using lean thinking for E-procurement implementation, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the procurement process with respect to Prime Minister Office Sri-Lanka.
