Abstract:

This investigation will address the possibility that partnering concepts are underutilized in small government projects. If Government Contracting Officers utilized partnering concepts on small construction projects, there could be a potential for saving millions of dollars annually. The primary objective of this report is to inform Contracting Officers of the benefits of partnering on small construction projects. Small projects will be considered to have a value of less than 3 million, mid-size projects range from 3 million to 10 million, and large projects will be considered to have a value greater than 10 million. The report will highlight the partnering practices of the United States Army Corps of Engineers in regard to small projects, while also serving as a primer for the implementation of partnering.
