Abstract:Rijkswaterstaat is changing. Becoming an agency has led to another way of working and has ¿among other things considerable consequences for its procurement methods. `Market, unless¿ is now set by Rijkswaterstaat as a general starting point. The client, Rijkswaterstaat, is shifting more tasks and responsibilities towards market parties, so eventually Rijkswaterstaat can focus on its primary tasks with less FTE¿s. This thesis focuses on one new type of contract for procurement: Turnkey. Turnkey is a contractual concept whereby a single contractor (after selection) is engaged to perform all obligations needed for the completion of the work based on the owners specifications, i.e., the supply of the design, the supply of equipment and materials and other construction obligations. Untill this moment, Rijkswaterstaat has not gained much experience with turnkey-like contracts. From this perspective, Rijkswaterstaat aims at gaining more insights in which types of infrastructural works are suitable for application of turnkey¿like contracts. To determine the appropriateness of turnkey-like contracts, procurement selection criteria are needed. The purpose of the research is to ascertain a set of criteria for determining the appropriateness of turnkey-like contracts applicable to road infrastructure projects of Rijkswaterstaat. Research shows the absence of a universal and undisputed definition of turnkey. This research therefore uses a work definition as a starting point This work definition describes a division of roles between Rijkswaterstaat and contractors wherein Rijkswaterstaat applies minimal coordination and transfers design and build responsibilities as early in the development process as possible.
