This paper reports on research undertaken in Nepal into perceptions of trust in public eprocurement systems and of their anti-corruption capabilities. The research set out to examine the relationships between factors including perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, trust, and intent to adopt anti-corruption technology in public procurement. The research was guided by the Technology Acceptance model and Principal-agent theory. The findings suggest that the intent-to-adopt public e-procurement has a positive and significant relationship with concepts of usefulness, ease of use, and trust when democratic governments in developing countries attempt to combat corruption in public procurement.
