Project Delivery Method Selection Guidance

PDMSG Overview

PDMSG was developed to aid WSDOT staff in evaluating projects for the most appropriate Project Delivery Method (PDM) based on each project’s attributes, opportunities and risks that result in the most cost effective and best value project delivery.

PDMSG provides a scalable, unbiased and systematic process to determine the PDMSG. The process provides the documentation needed to support the PDM selection and gain approval. The approval process and timing is clearly identified and is integrated within the existing project development process.

Using a systematic and unbiased process to determine the most appropriate PDM, based on project attributes, opportunities and risks will result in the most cost effective and best value project delivery.
