Rationalising public procurement of complex construction projects by the price component selection

    Abstract

    It has long been the custom in construction to select service providers, especially contractors, solely on the basis of the lowest bid. The practice has led to risk taking and adversarial relations and created problems in the sector, thereby, impeding its development. Pressures to renew the implementer selection come also from a broader cultural change: a value-added strategy is now being pursued also in construction and more collaborative, relational project practices are increasingly applied in various forms. A collaborative approach often also means early involvement of the key parties to the process since traditional, sequential involvement of the parties does not allow mutual exchange of information and collaboration for the benefit of the project. Therefore, early involvement of the construction team is increasingly utilised especially in demanding projects to incorporate versatile expertise in their planning. Early involvement has also become part of governments’ strategies.
