Abstract

Partnership procurement approach is increasingly been adopted as an innovative approach for infrastructural procurement in developing countries. This paper assessed critical constructs for the adoption of partnership procurement approach for sustainable development of water supply projects in Nigeria. In most Nigerian urban cities majority of the citizens have no access to safe drinking water, the existing public water source manage and operated by states water boards is challenge with unsteady power supply, dilapidated treatment plants and pipes and lack of basic maintenance procedures. Quantitative research method was adopted, questionnaire was used in collecting data from randomly selected construction procurement parties. 71 retrieved usable questionnaires out of the 100 copies distributed were analyzed with descriptive statistics and relative important index (RII), items were ranked in order of importance towards adopting partnership procurement approach for water supply projects. From the RII results obtained, three factors with the highest RII were “partnership procurement enable preparation of standard bidding documents”, “partnership procurement approach support policy development and implementation” and “partnership procurement ensures close monitoring and evaluation of projects”. The study has contributed to the emergent research in procurement of projects through partnership, the findings has pin pointed at the main critical constructs that influence the adoption of partnership approaches for successfully water supply projects in Nigerian urban cities as a developing economy.
