Description The objective of this study was to determine the influence of Supply Chain Process Integration Capabilities (SCPIC) on information technology infrastructure of public universities in Kenya. The study was underpinned on the Resource Dependence Theory. The null hypothesis that guided the study was: SCPIC have no significant influence on information technology infrastructure of public universities in Kenya. The study employed cross-sectional survey design. The unit of analysis for the study was public universities. Primary data was collected from 31 public universities in Kenya, using structured questionnaire administered to the heads of procurement and ICT departments. A pilot study was conducted. Validity and reliability tests were done using Cronbach Alpha coefficient. To describe profiles of the universities and research variables, means, standard deviations and coefficient of variations were used. Pearson's correlation was used to examine relationships between the variables. Linear regression analysis was used to test the hypothesis. The findings of the study indicated that supply chain process integration capabilities influence information technology infrastructure of public universities in Kenya. By empirically examining the model connecting the variables, the study has contributed to building of scientific knowledge. The study has provided scholars with insights into the role of supply chain process integration capabilities as an independent variable and information technology infrastructure as a dependent variable. The study concluded that supply chain process integration capabilities enhance information technology infrastructure of public universities in Kenya. This is critical in human capital development and capacity building for achievement of The 'Big 4' Agenda in Kenya and realization of Kenya Vision 2030. Public universities should make deliberate efforts to establish strong SCPIC in order to enhance information technology infrastructure of the public universities. The research recommends replication of the study in different sectors and contexts to enhance understanding of the relationship between supply chain process integration capabilities and information technology infrastructure
