New Resource Explores Qualifications Based Selection of Contractors
October 13, 2009
The AGC Project Delivery Committee released Qualifications Based Selection of Contractorson August 24. Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) is a procurement method in which the final criteria for selection are qualifications and demonstrated competence without consideration of price/cost until contract negotiation.
QBS of contractors is emerging as one response to the demands of the current marketplace, wherein owners are increasingly seeking collaborative early contractor involvement. This white paper explores the trend of QBS of contractors, discusses QBS benefits and challenges, considers how QBS works with various project delivery systems and offers owner suggestions for QBS best practices.
Qualifications Based Selection of Contractors was developed by the QBS Working Group of the AGC Project Delivery Committee and can be found at www.agc.org/projectdelivery, or by clicking here.
