  •   Kenneth Goga Riany


E-Administration remains a key E-Government strategy that seeks to ensure the management of the government institutions and organizations if effectively done to enhance effectiveness and proper service delivery. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of E-Administration on the public service delivery among state agencies in Kenya. The study adopted a descriptive research design to collect data from the target population comprising of 4230 employees within the management cadre at 132 specific government state agencies. Convenient sampling technique was used by the study to sample the respondents within the 132 specific government state agencies. A sampling formula was applied to calculate the sample size of 365 employees and self-developed questionnaires were used to collect data from the sample. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study found that E-Administration had a significant and positive influence on public service delivery by the state agencies in Kenya. The study further established that strategy execution had a significant moderating effect on the relationship between E-Administration and public service delivery by the state agencies in Kenya. The study recommended that the government through the state agencies should embrace E-Administration as a way of enhancing public service delivery. The management of state agencies should furthermore embrace strategy execution practices so as to enable success of E-Administration.
