Abstract

This report puts forward a suggested approach to the ongoing discussions on technology adoption by the architectural-engineering-construction industry (AEC), presenting a case for qualifications-based selection (QBS) of professional architectural and engineering services. QBS is a federally mandated process for the procurement of professional architectural and engineering services, which is based on qualifications rather than low price. QBS can be the vehicle for the education of owners on the need for new technology and can serve as the catalyst for the introduction and financing of such technology in the industry. The report, which outlines the findings of a recent study performed on QBS, is based on two years of data on recently procured projects in New York City (about $900 million in contract values) as well as past literature.
