Abstract

The motivation behind alternate delivery systems has been the poor performance of the traditional design-bid-build process. Construction professionals have identified public contract law and bureaucratic procurement/contract offices as one of the sources of problems in construction industry. The United States Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) (approximately $100M in construction renovation awards per year) attempted to overcome this obstacle through a partnership with the Performance Based Studies Research Group (PBSRG) at Arizona State University. The MEDCOM implemented the information environment portion of the Performance Information Procurement System (PIPS) into IDIQ contracts through the specifications. No procurement was conducted in the research and the concept has met with preliminary success, minimizing construction management issues by over 50%.
