Abstract

A systematic multicriteria decision analysis technique is described for contractor selection and bid evaluation based on utility theory and which permits different types of contractor capabilities to be evaluated. A UK case study is used to illustrate the technique. The theoretical basis and the advantages of the technique are also presented.
