    Is there a flowchart or decision tree which explains how to make the decision to go with design-build or design-bid-build in a construction procurement? I want to see some breakdown of pros/cons for either design-build or design-bid-build so I can adequately answer questions from my customer. We are in the beginning states of acquisition planning, and his design team is at 35% design.


    Answer

    This response is based on the information provided.  We suggest you discuss with your contracting and finance team, program manager and/or legal department as appropriate.

     

    There is no official chart.  The reason is that each situation is unique and carries its own conditions.  The acquisition team is called to apply the FAR and other acquisition direction guidance to the specifics of its situation.
