Abstract. Electronic Procurement (E-procurement) is an application of Electronic Commerce (E-Commerce) that facilitates corporate purchasing over the Internet. Eprocurement is expected to play a foremost role in supply chain management and improve the service of delivery. However, not every firm has been successful in E-procurement implementation; most of organizations that fail or delay the implementation are due to non organizational assessment at micro level. To address this issue there is a need for an advanced assessment of organizational electronic readiness (e-readiness) to fuel a concrete planning for the implementation of E-procurement in Malaysian based organizations. This paper attempted to explore the literature on organizational e-readiness factors that lead to E-procurement implementation. Eventually, a proposed theoretical framework is developed for organizational e-readiness that consolidates relevant factors that have been categorized into perceived management readiness, perceived technological readiness and perceived environmental readiness. Beside the impact of organizational e-readiness to E-procurement implementation, market turbulence also has been identified as a moderating factor between organizational ereadiness and E-procurement implementation. Keywords: E-readiness, E-procurement implementation, framework
