This paper studies the benefits and drawbacks of partnering in public sector construction projects and makes a recommendation to the city of Portland to move toward partnering in their construction projects. The consensus of interview respondents is that partnering is beneficial and that the city can benefit from such a move. It is recommended that the city's Bureau of Environmental Services begin using partnering on all construction contracts over one million dollars in value. The required steps for the city to implement partnering are also outlined.
