Public works project managers are under great pressure to award construction contracts using a loosely defined process called "design-build." There are benefits that can be realized using design-build as a construction delivery process, but there are serious drawbacks when this concept is manipulated into a construction procurement process. This course tells you how the benefits of a design-build construction delivery process can be obtained without jeopardizing the integrity of a public agency's procurement process. Topics to be covered include:

  • The difference between a construction delivery process and a construction procurement process
  • The difference between awarding a construction contract based on subjective and objective criteria
  • The various combinations of construction delivery and construction procurement processes‚Ķ.and their plusses and minuses
  • The two processes that can deliver the benefits of design-build, as a construction delivery process, without opening the door to the abuses that will ensue when it is manipulated into a construction procurement process
