Procurement of architect and engineering professional services and construction services is a niche speciality in the profession. While the public procurement principles continue to apply, some practices, methods, and laws are unique to the procurement of professional services and construction. Procuring professional design services and construction can be very challenging, as each project is unique, and often complicated. New and evolving project delivery methods like progressive design-build and construction manager at risk adds new challenges for the public procurement professional.
