1 Alignment of State of Colorado Procurement Process with Industry Best Practices June 6, 2014

2 AGC Colorado  AGC is a national organization with 92 chapters and 30,000 members  AGC Colorado is a commercial building chapter with 400 members  55 General Contractors and 150 Specialty Contractors  Active AIA/AGC/ACEC Committee

3 Capital Construction & Controlled Maintenance Funding  AGC has been the main private group advocating for increased general funds  Controlled Maintenance increased from $10M to $45M (FY 12 to FY 14)  Capital Construction increased from $11.4M to $143.1 (FY 12 to FY14)  CC & CM for FY15 is $273M  Collaboration with Universities on FY2013-14 Conditional Funding for 8 projects - $135M


5 CM GC Task Force  3 years ago AGC started discussing best practices for procuring construction & design services  CM GC Task Force formed by the Board of Directors with task to develop a BP recommendation  AGC invited AIA and ACEC to join in the task force  Task force identified the State of Colorado IPD (CM/GC and D-B) as a good system to build on

7 Our Vision is Bigger Than Just “State of Colorado” Projects

8 10 Minute Round Table  Describe the characteristics or attributes of the “Best” projects you have been a part of.  Describe the characteristics or attributes of your “Worst-Most Frustrating” projects.

9 How Do We All Get More Of The “BEST” Project Outcomes?

10 “CHANGE”  Insanity – Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. “Albert Einstein”  Not likely to improve or get more “Best Outcomes” without adjusting some things.

11 Best Project Outcome  Given your feedback on the best-worst projects, one predictor of best project outcome’s is:  Pick the right team members  How do we accomplish this?  Improve the team selection process

12 Vendor Procurement  AGC-AIA-ACEC Committee has been studying “Best Practices” for 3 years  Received feedback from multiple states and industry organizations  State of Colorado process is one of the best local processes  AGC-AIA-ACEC Committee started with State Process to align with “Industry Best Practices”  Minor changes to “State of Colorado” process - then model to private sector

13 Changes Proposed  Help evaluation teams understand industry procurement Best Practices to ensure better consistency when implementing State Selection Process  Use a forced ranking of vendors when scoring qualifications of vendors

14 Best Practices  Identify appropriate selection criteria  Determine importance (weighting) of each criteria  Use a forced ranking process to score each criteria  Hold Round Table discussion after interviews to clarify questions and build consensus  Keep cost proposals confidential until interview scoring is complete

15 Best Practices  Provide transparent feedback of results to all competing firms  Do not interview more than 3 - 5 firms  List selection criteria and weighting in RFP  Do not assume all cost proposals are true “Apples to Apples”  If big deltas, ask “Why”  Verify assumptions of different vendors

16 Forced Ranking

17 Why Forced Ranking  History of past projects – shows minimal differentiation when using “Ratings”  Minimal differentiation on qualifications leads to a primarily cost-based selection  Vendors – are smart and recognize these trends; therefore, vendors overly focus on “winning” cost points  Leads to “poor-boying” staffing  Under staffed projects - a leading indicator to bad project outcomes  Forced ranking will help reduce this behavior and outcomes

18 Why Change?  Creates better project outcomes by selecting best value vendor.  Stay aligned with industry best practices.  Forced ranking creates more differentiation to insure a true “qualifications” based selection.  Makes the selection process easier for interviewers.  Better process will attract better vendors.
