This study analyzed the imminent of the management contract of privatized enterprises in Tanzania, the study is guided by the assumption that, the government introduced management contract as a solution to the declining parastatal organization, whether management contract proved success or failure is explored by this study. The study employed a case study design to explore the respondents' perceptions and views on the subject. It used both qualitative and quantitative approaches in data collection, interview and questions were used as the instruments for the data collections.

Employees are also not motivated; they work under pressure and great fear only to ensure that contractors' goals are met and customers' satisfactions are guaranteed.
