The study used the sampling techniques of stratified random sampling and from the total population size of one hundred eighty eight enterprises on the site. The researcher used the sample of one hundred twenty eight enterprises which represent the seventy two for construction and fifty six for manufacturing enterprises. From the total of 128 questionnaire distributed to the enterprise 122 was filling and returned. By using SPSS software the supply chain performance expressed by mean and standard deviation as well as correlation and regression analysis was made. The result of the study showed there is a high correlation between all variables and the relationship between the dependent and independent variable was positive except that of lead time of production. With this result the researcher conclude that information sharing, internal integration and quality of product have positive and significant effect on the supply chain performance but collaboration and lead time of production have positive effect on the performance of construction material producers rather not significant roll. Based on the findings the following issues are recommended enterprises and housing project built simple computerized mechanizes like telegram, What’s-App mobile application in order to effective information sharing. More over future studies will consider other variables not included in this research as well as all enterprises found in the city.
