In the 1970's and 1980's, the Federal Government, especially the United States Military, did not have to worry about funding constraints. During this time, the United States and the Soviet Union were in the middle of the Cold War, racing to build up their military strength. Now that the Cold War is over, the United States Government is faced with a declining budget and smaller military force. Even with a reduced budget, the Government must continue to maintain and operate military facilities around the world. In order to accomplish this, the Government must be more innovative and efficient like the civilian sector. Presently the construction industry is making a move towards design build contracts because of several factors; i.e. reduced costs, one party responsibility, and shorter time frames. With the implementation of the Federal Acquisition Reform Act of 1996, the Government is now using a two phase design build process that allows for the pre-qualification of contractors prior to submittal proposal and contract award. Southern Division (SOUTHDIV), Naval Facilities Engineering Command, located in Charleston, South Carolina has taken the two phase design build process one step further. SOUTHDIV has created the Design Build Order Contract (DBOC), which is a hybrid of the indefinite quantities (IDQ) contract and the two phase design build contract. This report will provide a better understanding of the Government's two phase design build and DBOC processes and also the current status of DBOC
