dc.description.abstract The traditional contracting/delivery system in Botswana, introduced by the US, UK, and European educators, consultants, and practitioners, has not been working well in Botswana. The poor project delivery system results have forced the organization of a new group, the Government Implementation Coordination Group (GICO) to attempt to solve the problems. In the fall of 2008, the University of Botswana (UB), through the US State Department sponsored Fulbright program, brought professor Kashiwagi, and the best value Performance Information Procurement System (PIPS) technology, the Information Measurement Theory (IMT), and the Industry Structure Analysis to the UB project management section. This paper proposes that the client’s professional representative requires a new, more effective role. The role includes using performance information, transforming the client’s expectations into a design/construction intent by using expert vendors, ensuring the vendors manage and minimize the risk that they do not control, outsourcing the technical responsibilities, and doing quality assurance instead of quality control. This paradigm will minimize project risk, maximize project value, and increase the professionalism of project management, construction management, and quantity surveyors. These concepts will be tested on three test projects in Botswana. en_US
