Procurement Procedures as predictors for cost and time overrun in construction

Ågren, Robert LU ; Widén, Kristian LU and Olander, Stefan LU (2012) 5th International Public Procurement Conference
Abstract
The choice of procedure during public procurement is assumed to affect the overall result of the project. When studying the construction industry; delivery methods, payment systems and project specific variables may affect the end result. The question here is if project success is predicted by choice of procurement procedures. A survey was done on 222 road and railroad construction projects in Sweden between 2007 and 2010, collecting expected and actual empirical data on cost and time overruns and number of non-conformances from each project. The conclusion is that procurement procedures do not predict cost and time overrun nor do they predict number of non-conformances during inspection.
