Performance-Based Contracts Executive Seminar

Oct 30, 2023 - Nov 8, 2023


In traditional road construction and maintenance contracts, works are executed by contractors under the control and direction of the client (owner) and paid on the basis of unit prices for a schedule of work outputs (in terms of measured quantities). The results are, in many cases, less-than-optimal because the contractor is incentivized to carry out the maximum amount of works in order to maximize turnover and profits. Under performance-based contracts, contractors have a strong financial incentive to be both efficient and effective through intelligently designed interventions that optimize work outputs to ensure that pre-defined key performance indicators ( in terms of level of service) are achieved and maintained over the contract period.

In this globally recognized IRF executive seminar, international practitioner-experts in highway operations and maintenance, road asset management, public procurement and contract management, public private partnerships (PPPs), and sustainable development will present best practices and case studies in performance-based contracting to preserve road assets. The seminar agenda includes a five-day program of presentations and discussions about performance-based contracts and a two-day program of technical site visits. The seminar includes in-depth coverage of the World Bank’s OPBRC including the Standard Procurement Documents (SPDs) and maintenance specifications.

IRF’s Executive Seminars are specifically developed to meet the needs of today’s highway managers. Whether you are a representative of a highway agency, a member of a financing institution, a consultant or a contractor, IRF seminars will give you the necessary tools to make improvements in your organization. Our mission is to facilitate progress whenever and wherever we can by organizing constructive events, furnishing needed information and assisting with the training and transfer of best practices and technologies around the world.

As part of a global effort to foster awareness of Sustainable Infrastructure Development, international lending organizations and donor agencies such as the World Bank currently provide loans and technical assistance to support programs that assist highway agencies to improve sector governance, seek value for money in public spending on roads, and boost sector knowledge and skills. IRF Executive Seminars aim to support this objective.

IRF Global is now recognized as an approved training provider by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), a respected professional body that provides transportation professionals with recognition, support and business insights to accelerate their careers and influence the future of the sector.
