AbstractAs traditional construction procurement approaches are found to be inadequate in meeting the demands and challenges of recent times, alternative procurement routes such as through management contracting or build-operate-transfer are increasingly being adopted. Although design/build is one of the more popular alternative procurement methods that also has a long history, it does not appear to have well-established contractor selection procedures. This paper focuses on developing a model for contractor prequalification and bid evaluation in design/build projects. For this purpose, it presents a comparative overview of some international practices in the design/build contractor selection process. The overall objective is to identify the core aspects of selecting a suitable bidder in order to achieve the best `value for money.' The strengths and weaknesses of current practices of contractor selection are highlighted while identifying some of the best practices followed in design/build projects by various clients.
