Project Delivery For Governmental Entities September 1, 2001 2 The 77 th Legislature through Senate Bill No. 510 authorized certain Governmental Entities to utilize several different methods for the procurement of certain facility construction contracts. (Local Government Code 252.022, 252.043, 262.023; as described in Subchapter H, Chapter 271.) 5B510 defines a “Governmental Entity” only as a city county or river authority. (Local Government Code-271.111(10)). 5B510 defines a “Facility” as buildings, the design and construction of which are governed by accepted building codes. The term does not include: (A) highways, roads, streets, bridges, utilities, water supply projects, water plants, wastewater plants, water and wastewater distribution or conveyance facilities, wharves, docks, airport runways and taxiways, drainage projects, or related types of projects associated with civil engineering construction; or (B) buildings or structures that are incidental to projects that are primarily civil engineering construction projects The statute provides specific definition of each delivery method, and the process and procedures for procurement. Construction, however, is a complex process wherein many variables affect the final outcome. The drive by industry and owners to deliver projects faster, spend less money, improve quality, reduce litigation and create less conflict has com- pounded this complexity. As Governmental Entities deliberate which project delivery method provides “best value,” a number of factors must be evaluated. There is no single “best” method. Each delivery method has certain advantages and disadvantages. It is not the intent of this document to endorse any specific method, but to provide a better understanding of the most common delivery methods including basic definitions, relative merits and limitations of each method, insight to the typical issues inherent in each method and recommend procurement guidelines.
