dc.description.abstractPartnering is a tool used in the construction industry to reduce claims and litigations and also to deliver a quality product in a cost efficient and timely manner. This research analyzes the impact of the partnering process on the outcome of construction projects in Texas’ public universities. For this study project specific data were obtained from 218 buildings built between 1996 and 2006. Parametric and non-parametric statistical tests were used to measure and explain the project performances of partnered and nonpartnered projects on four different building types in terms of cost overrun, schedule change, change orders and claims. One of the variables that had a significant effect on the outcome of the project performance parameters was the initial cost of the project. It was found that projects that utilized partnering were less likely to have claims that non-partnered projects. Partnered projects also had fewer change orders than non-partnered projects for two of the four building types that were analyzed. The results of this study can be used in the successful planning and execution of construction projects by organizations involved in the construction procurement processes for Texas’ public universities.en_US
