A needs based methodology for classifying construction clients and selecting contractors: comment
Mills, Anthony & Skitmore, Martin (1999) A needs based methodology for classifying construction clients and selecting contractors: comment. Construction Management and Economics, 17(1), pp. 5-7.
This note is a comment on Chinyio, E.A., Olomolaiye, P.O., Kometa, S.T. and Harris, F.C. (1998) A needs based methodology for classifying construction clients and selecting contractors, Construction Management and Economics, 16(10), 91-8, which describes research aimed at classifying clients by their needs rather than by the traditional public-private-developer approach. The paper also proposes a new method of selecting contractors by matching clients' needs to contractors' ability to satisfy them. The note offers constructive criticism of some aspects of the analysis.
