Additionally, qualitative data was obtained from key informative interview guide and was analyzed using thematic analysis. Descriptive statistics included percentages, mean, frequency distribution, and standard deviation. Inferential statistics focused on Pearson correlation and regression analysis. Regression analysis was used to determine the relationship between the elements under investigation. It was established that adoption of disseminating performance contract results had a positive influence on the target achievement of academic programmes in Public Universities (?=0.387, p-value=0.000).
