Acquisition Strategy

Developing an Acquisition Strategy in Design-Build

An owner’s choice of project delivery system and procurement approach strongly influence project results. When choosing design-build, an owner must implement a procurement/ acquisition plan that enhances collaboration and other benefits of design-build. This workshop provides a high-level overview of the synergistic elements critical to a successful acquisition strategy. (8 CEUS)

It focuses on:

  • Performance-based requirements, including how to determine functional/operational requirements, goals and restraints, and correlation of goals to performance characteristics
  • Provide an overview of the two-phase design-build source selection process — shortlisting to the most highly qualified teams, as well as the final selection of the best team for the project
  • How design-build incentive contracting promotes cooperation, teamwork, collaboration and helps parties achieve extraordinary success
