Description
Sponsored by the Construction Research Council of the Construction Institute of ASCE.

The report is a comprehensive and objective presentation of methods that government agencies can use to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public-sector project delivery. While the U.S. highway system is the largest and most efficient road network in the world, it was built primarily using a design-bid-build process intended to provide a balance between quality and cost. This traditional approach to project delivery approach has served the U.S. public well, but it also receives criticism regarding long delivery times, excessive cost growth, and litigious relationships. Faced with increasing public demand and reduced staff numbers, federal, state, and local agencies are seeking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public-sector project delivery.

This book provides vital information on several different project delivery methods, including design-build, construction management at risk, performance-based road maintenance contracts, best-value procurement, quality-based contractor qualification, warranty contracting, and incentive/disincentive contracting.

This book is essential reading for engineers, government officials, and construction managers associated with the road construction industry.
