Developing an Acquisition Strategy in Design-Build

Setting the Stage for Design-build Success

For Owners writing RFQs and RFPs, and the industry practitioners responding, it’s vital that the design-build process begins with a procurement plan that optimizes collaboration, teamwork and open communication. Don’t start off your design-build project on the wrong foot.

What makes a successful design-build acquisition strategy?

DBIA’s Developing an Acquisition Strategy course provides best practices, practical advice, tips and approaches for crafting solicitations, selecting the best team, and effectively using contract incentives – all of which form the foundation for successful design-build teams and exceptional project outcomes. This course is designed for Owners and practitioners alike and focuses on:

  • Understanding and writing meaningful performance-based requirements
  • Maximizing two-phase design-build source selection, from shortlisting to final selection, ensuring selection of the best team
  • Using incentive contracting to promote collaboration and deliver project success
