Issue #5
Volume 3, Number 2

Welcome to Volume 3, Issue 2. The first paper by Larsen, Ussing and Bruno analyse the selection and assignment criteria employed within the Danish construction industry for public sector projects that are put out in European tender. Their study uses a quantitative approach which found that the most used selection and assignment criteria was invited tenders with pre-qualification and lowest price in 69.8 % of tenders. This was with little regard to public project types. The second paper by Ogunsanmi investigates key performance indicators (KPIs) that could improve performance of public-private partnership (PPP) projects in Nigeria. The KPIs are ranked by PPP project stakeholders and the results indicate some top KPIs for performance improvement which could have implication for policy and decision makers in Nigeria. I hope you will find both papers a good read. Once again feel free to send in any suggestion that could improve our activity.
