dc.description.abstract lOS refer to the computer and telecommunications infrastructure developed, operated and/or used by two or more firms for the purpose of exchanging information that support a business application or process. Kenya government, in collaboration with other stakeholders involved in enhancing teaching and research in the learning institutions have constructed a terrestrial fiber-optic network that connects most institutions of higher learning to enable them integrate their facilities for the purpose of sharing resources. Despite these efforts, adoption of Inter-Organization Information Systems (lOIS) by universities in Kenya is far from being realized. This begs the question as to what organizational factors determines lOIS adoption in the universities. This study filled this gap by analyzing organizational factors of lOIS adopting in the universities in Kenya, given the mixed results from empirical evidence on lOIS adoption generally. A broad understanding of these factors is important to the policy makers who can embrace the motivating factors to enhance the adoption of the lOIS and suppress the barriers of its adoption. A cross-sectional descriptive survey was carried out using both qualitative and quantitative methods and a census done on 68 universities in Kenya. Data were collected using both questionnaires and semi-structured interview guide. University managers provided the required data. A logic regression procedure was used to analyze the collected data. The study revealed that the lOIS adoption is low adoption in the universities in Kenya en_US
