Institutional owners interested in BIM enabled infrastructure and IPD & BIM Solutions generally would benefit from sponsoring an IPD & BIM Solutions Series and putting IPD Procurement Programs in place.

Our Broken Procurement System

Collaborative Construction

Most public procurement programs mandate a low bid / tender process. Procurement officers in the public sector believe, with all their hearts, that low bid means best price. The legal framework within which we plan, procure, design, construct, operate and maintain facilities and infrastructure promotes and REWARDS behaviors antithetical to the building of trust. That impairs our ability to effectively adopt BIM and to deploy BIM in an IPD environment.

Public Procurement of IPD

Collaborative Construction

A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post on public options for procuring planning, design and construction services in an IPD environment on a project specfic basis. The tentative title is "Wicked Procurement - IPD & BIM on Steroids". For governmental entities to procure, operate and maintain infrastructure across entire portfilios those entities must adopt comprehensive IPD procurement methods.

Federal Procurement Meets a DC9 Cat!

Collaborative Construction

These are coming from a lively conversation in the BIM Expert group forum on LinkedIn related to a VA Project. Existing federal procurement laws and regulations - and state procurement laws for that matter - are antithetical to BIM and IPD. Thus, they mandate BIM. The existing brier patch of federal laws and regulations serve as an effective barrier to the 80% of BIM that is social and to IPD. One more post to share.
