Partnered project performance in the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command

This article overviews the history of construction partnering in the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), presents survey results regarding the partnering status in nine NAVFAC divisions, and compares the performance of partnered vs. non-partnered projects. NAVFAC's partnering experience has grown exponentially in recent years and spread throughout the Navy. A survey of over 200 NAVFAC engineers and contract representatives was conducted between 1993 and 1994 regarding the status of partnering in NAVFAC's nine domestic divisions, and showed that partnering had had positive impacts on average claim costs, value engineering savings, and project duration change. It did not, however, significantly impact the average cost change and change order cost. The overwhelming majority of survey participants expressed a positive regard for partnering. The article recommends a continued expansion of partnering, not only for NAVFAC, for other public agencies as well.
