One of the most difficult and challenging tasks facing facility owners today is to procure and complete
quality construction work quickly for maintenance, repair and minor new construction. Following the
traditional process of preparing a full set of bid documents, getting the approvals, advertising, bidding,
and awarding a contract makes it difficult to be responsive to your internal clients. Using traditional
contracting methods can also pose other serious challenges including: getting high quality work consistently;
maintaining contractual control; reducing the number of claims and changes; and achieving participation goals
for local minority and women owned businesses.
