This paper reports on the successful application of BPR to the procurement of construction projects. The traditional construction procurement process is analysed and the failings and their causes identified. A case study of a Millennium project in the UK is described which was procured after re-engineering the procurement process. The resulting investigation of the project revealed significant savings in cost, reduction in delivery time and the highest quality of construction.

Abstract

This paper reports on the successful application of BPR to the procurement of construction projects. The traditional construction procurement process is analysed and the failings and their causes identified. A case study of a Millennium project in the UK is described which was procured after re-engineering the procurement process. The resulting investigation of the project revealed significant savings in cost, reduction in delivery time and the highest quality of construction.
