According to the DBIA, they suggest following these three (3) best practices for federal agencies as they make their project delivery and procurement decisions:
1. An agency should conduct a proactive and objective assessment of the unique characteristics of its program/project and its organization before deciding to use design-build. FAR Parts 7.104, 7.105, 36.301
2. An agency should implement a procurement plan that enhances collaboration and other benefits of design-build and is in harmony with the reasons that the agency chose the design build delivery system.
3. An agency using a competitive design-build procurement that seeks price and technical proposals should: (a) establish clear evaluation and selection processes; (b) ensure that the process is fair, open and transparent; and (c) value both technical concepts and price in the selection process.
