Towards an Infrastructure Procurement Framework: An Initial Conceptualisation

Furneaux, Craig W. (2007) Towards an Infrastructure Procurement Framework: An Initial Conceptualisation. In 11th International Research Symposium of Public Management (IRSPM X1), 2 – 4 April, Potsdam, Germany.


This paper is an initial conceptualisation of a PhD project which would seek to develop a infrastructure procurement framework – a policy document which would detail how, and under what conditions, infrastructure procurement contractual arrangements are successful. As it is an initial conceptualisation, the paper will focus on the research problem, theoretical and methodological issues involved in operationalising the framework. In particular it will outline the phases of such a study, together with the methodology necessary for the project to be a success.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
